It's not every day that a woman on a cellphone robs banks, but that's exactly what transpired Wednesday in West Palm Beach, Fla. NBC Miami shared the information available so far.

The robbery happened at an Okeechobee Boulevard bank, and authorities are still trying to determine who the woman is. The woman on a cellphone who robbed the bank is believed to be in her early 20s. She is between 5-foot-4 and 5-foot-6 and has a slim build. She was wearing a hat and a brown wig. She had the cellphone pressed up to her ear seemingly pretending to chat as she handed the teller a note demanding money. She then fled the bank on foot.

At this point nothing has been disclosed regarding how much money she managed to get in the robbery. The Palm County Sheriff's Office has released photos of the suspect on Twitter, even taunting her a bit. Anybody who has any information on the woman on her cellphone robbing the bank is encouraged to call the Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
