Location: Regions Bank, 6202 Commerce Palms Boulevard, Tampa

Suspect Description: W/F in her 40s with long dark hair. Seen traveling in a silver SUV (possibly a GMC Acadia) and a white SUV.


Tampa Police Detectives are searching for a woman who attempted to withdraw money twice from the same bank using two separate stolen identities. On December 28, 2010 the female suspect, drove through the teller lane at Regions Bank in Tampa Palms. She tried to withdraw money out of a victim's account whose license and bank information was stolen earlier that day in Trinity, FL. The bank teller noticed the suspect was not the same person pictured on the license and refused to complete the transaction. The suspect then fled the scene in a silver SUV.

On January 26, 2011, the female suspect returned to the teller lane at the Tampa Palms bank and attempted to cash a check. She provided the teller with a license stolen from a car in Mobile, Alabama. The bank tellers again noticed that the suspect was not the person who she claimed to be. They asked her to come inside the bank to complete the transaction, however, the suspect drove away in a white SUV. Detectives later determined that the check was stolen during an auto burglary in Hillsborough County on January 20th.

Detectives believe the suspect is still attempting to commit this fraud at area banks. They are asking that if anyone comes in contact with this suspect to call the Tampa Police Department at 813-231-6130.
