Police said the suspect descriptions in both instances are similar. Authorities said the suspect appeared to be a heavy-set woman wearing a United States Air Force track suit with a winter-style Skull cap. The person also wore dark sunglasses, black gloves and carried a laptop style black bag.
At approximately 11:41 a.m., the suspect reportedly walked up to the teller at Capitol Federal Savings inside Price Chopper at 500 NE Barry Road in Kansas City, Mo., and presented a note demanding money. No one was injured, and she escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash in possibly a blue, four-door Nissan Altima.
Authorities said a person matching the same suspect description then targeted the Community America Bank inside Hyvee at 5330 NW 64th in Kansas City, Mo. At about 12:08 p.m. a woman walked up to the teller station there, presented a note, but fled without any cash.
Police initially thought they had received reports of a third robbery inside the Price Chopper at 4820 N. Oak Trafficway in Kansas City, Mo., but authorities later determined no robbery or attempted robbery had occurred at that location.
