A woman wearing an obvious dark red wig robbed a west Fort Worth bank Thursday afternoon, police said.

But she is not believed to be the “wig bandit” responsible for several other recent robberies, police said in a news release.

She stole “an undisclosed amount of money” about 2:30 p.m. Thursday from the Compass Bank in the 5700 block Camp Bowie Boulevard,

“The female threatened the teller,” police said. She “left on foot southbound on Horne Street.”

Bank employees slipped a dye pack in with the stolen money, police said.

“So there is a possibility the female would have red dye on her clothing and body,” the news release said.

She is an Anglo woman, early 20s, about 5-feet-2 and 110 to 120 pounds. She wore large brown sunglasses, a white sweater, green blouse and blue jeans.

The woman also had “Band-Aid or tape on her left fingers just above knuckle and possibly the same on her right hand, believed to be covering tattoos on fingers,” police said.
