FBI Searching for Bedazzled Attempted Bank Robber

The KPD and the FBI are searching for a woman who tried to rob a North Knoxville bank Thursday. It happened just before 4:00 p.m. at the BB&T on Merchants Road.

Investigators say she asked to speak with a loan officer, then slid the employee a note saying she was armed. Officials say she demanded money, but before she got any, the woman was spooked and took off.

The woman is described as approximately 5 feet tall, wearing jeans, white shoes and a dark shirt with a gray zip-up hoodie. She also wore a tan bedazzled type of hat.

Anyone with any information on the robbery or identity of the woman is asked to call the FBI at 865-544-0751 or your local police department.
