Last Updated: 108 days ago
LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Lafayette and Brownsburg police are looking for a female suspect in two holdups at Advance America on Monday.
The suspect was described as a white female, 26-27 years old, 5'4" tall and weighing approximately 150-160 pounds. Police said the suspect has brown hair and was last seen wearing a black and gray Under Armour sweatshirt and blue jeans.
According to a police release, officers responded Monday to a hold up alarm at Advance America, 405 Sagamore Pkwy S. Witnesses reported a female suspect who displayed a black or gray handgun.
The suspect left on foot northbound with an undisclosed amount of cash from the business.
The female suspect later entered an Advance America in Brownsburg just after 1 p.m. An employee told police the suspect discussed applying for a pay day loan. The employee thought the suspect was going to leave, but she grabbed a handgun out of her pants and pointed the gun at the employee and demanded money, police said.
She got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and left on foot in a southwest direction of travel.
Police confirmed the suspect appeared to be the same suspect that committed an armed robbery of the Advance America in Lafayette earlier in the day.
Police said the suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information on the identity of the female is urged to contact the Lafayette Police Department at 765-807-1200 or the We Tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME. Anyone with information can also contact Det. Mike Gill at 317-852-1109 ext. 2139.
