PHOENIX -- Authorities are searching for a woman believed to have robbed the same Wells Fargo branch twice in the past month.

According to police, a black woman between 5 feet 3 inches and 5 feet 7 inches tall entered the Bashas’ grocery store near Warner Road and 48th St. on Oct. 10 and approached the bank inside.

The suspect, who has been dubbed the ‘Wiggin Out Bandit,’ allegedly gave a teller a note demanding money. The teller complied with the note, and the suspect fled the scene with the cash.

Police said they believe the woman also robbed the same Wells Fargo location on Sept. 28.

She is believed to be between the ages of 27 and 33, and has a slender build with a medium complexion.

The woman was last seen wearing a white or cream colored hat, a dark blue Aeropostale hooded sweatshirt, and blue jeans.
