Authorities are searching for this woman, a chatting bank robber who strolled up to the counter at a South Florida bank on her cell phone. The robbery occurred at a TD Bank on Okeechobee Boulevard in West Palm Beach. The crime occurred June 4, but authorities are now releasing the voluble bandit’s photo in the hopes that someone will recognize this talk-and-rob crook.

The African American woman was wearing a white tank top, blue hat and appeared to be in her early 20s, said the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. She passed a note to the teller demanding money and fled on foot. She’s described as approximately 5 feet 4 to 6 inches tall, skinny, and was wearing a brown wig. Police said it’s unclear if she was actually connected to someone on the phone, or was just blabbing in it as part of her ruse.

WPTV out of West Palm Beach also carried a different photo of the woman. Police are asking that anyone who can identify this person to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.

When it comes to multitasking, it appears that cell phones have the full access pass. Evidently we can now add bank robberies to the list of places and events no longer immune to cell phone blabbers.
