Tacoma Police are looking for a bank robber who hit the Rainier Pacific Bank on South Pearl Street at about 2:30 p.m.

The robber ran from the bank, located at 1211 South Pearl Street, according to scanner traffic.

UPDATE: 3:31 p.m.: Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum said the robber used a note that implied a weapon to take the money.

She is described as a 5-foot-1 Asian woman in her late 20s to early 30s who was wearing a tan baseball cap, a blue hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

A police dog responded to the scene but could not track the robber.
