Tacoma police have released surveillance images of a woman who robbed a bank branch Wednesday.

None of the images show the robber’s face. Most show her back.

The robbery occurred just before 11:20 a.m. Wednesday. A woman entered the Rainier Pacific Bank branch at 1211 S. Pearl St., presented a note and implied she had a weapon. She got an undisclosed amount of money and left.

The woman was last seen walking east on South 12th Street.

She was described as Asian, 25 to 30 years old and about 5 feet 5. She had dark hair and an acne-marked face. She was last seen wearing a gray-and-blue hooded sweatshirt or jacket, black pants and white gloves, police reported.

Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and charges filed in the case. Tipsters may remain anonymous.

    What the Heck???/What kind of photo is that.? I’m sure they will get all kinds of tips from this mug shot……

  2. I can go outside on a clear night and take a clearer picture of the moon (almost a million miles away) than most banks can take of a robber 5 feet away. Pitiful.

  3. That bank needs to SPEND SOME MONEY on cameras!! Those empolyee are sitting ducks
