The FBI is looking for a woman they dubbed the “sweatpant bandit,” who has been committing bank robberies in Oklahoma City. Apparently the amazing economy hasn’t reached the flatlands yet.
“She enters the bank, and it’s a verbal demand,” said Andrea Anderson, Public Affairs Specialist for the FBI Oklahoma City. “Very aggressive. She’s left each bank with an undisclosed amount.”
So far, the ‘Sweatpant Bandit’ has robbed four Oklahoma City metro banks, hitting one of them twice. She’s committed one robbery a month from December to May but skipped March.
Apparently she was busy watching March Madness, since I doubt she’s a big Easter fan.
“One of the things that we would ask folks to be on the lookout is that she does show up in very heavy sweatpant attire, full length sweatpants from head to toe, a hoodie over her head, dark sunglasses,” Anderson said.
She’s described as a 5’3 to 5’6 white female, weighs about 110 lbs, is in her late 30s to mid 40s and sometimes carrying a floral print bag.
So the FBI just described every teenage girl in Philadelphia. Don’t believe me, try driving through Northeast Philadelphia, and count the number of teenagers – and twenty-somethings – walking the streets in their sweatpants and slippers. I am not kidding.
