Authorities say the suspect in Friday's robbery of the Cottondale branch of the Bank of Tuscaloosa may be linked to another bank robbery earlier this month.

Witnesses told officers the suspect had a "drawn on" beard when she entered the bank Friday.

Police say she told tellers she had a bomb and demanded money after placing a device on a counter.

She took an undisclosed amount of money and then fled the scene in a maroon vehicle.

The FBI and local police are investigating.

    I would have said Really, you have a bomb ? I would have pulled out a gun from under the counter and pointed it at her. And say I have a gun. What ever happen to protecting what is yours ? I do suppose if we all laid down and give up, America wouldn't be anymore.
