Authorities are searching for a woman who is suspected of robbing a Wells Fargo bank branch in Edna on Tuesday morning.

At 11:57 a.m., an alarm sounded, alerting authorities of a robbery at the bank, 1006 N. Wells St., in Edna, said Capt. Bruce McConathy, Edna Police Department.

A woman described as 5 feet tall, heavyset and wearing a dark blue jacket and eyeglasses is suspected of robbing the bank of an unspecified amount of money by displaying a threatening note, McConathy said.

Although the woman is accused of robbing the bank alone, the captain said another person, who was inside a small, black getaway car, is also suspected of being involved. Security cameras captured images of the woman, car and second person.
