Bank robber in drag strikes in Northwest
Pima County provided this image of the suspect

The Pima County Sheriff's Department has released a photograph of a man they say robbed a bank on North Oracle Road on April 7.

The man, who dressed as a woman during the robbery, was described as Hispanic, approximately 40-50 years old and roughly 5 feet 4 inches tall.

The suspect dressed as a woman in a short blond wig, sunglasses and nurse's coat and carried a black bag. A photograph showed the man also wore makeup and jewelry.

The man entered the Wells Fargo Bank at 7080 N. Oracle Road at 4:45 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, walked to one of the tellers and implied he had a gun, according to the sheriff's department.

The bank teller put a dye pack in the bag with money. Police said the pack was activated.

Anyone with information about the possible identity of the suspect or anyone who may have additional information about the bank robbery is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
