Police in Colorado are hunting for an elderly bank robber who made off with a bagful of cash after threatening to infect the teller with AIDS.
Cops said the thief was a pale, bony white woman wearing a train conductor’s cap and a gray Bass Pro Shops hoodie.
She walked into a Wells Fargo branch inside a Safeway in Longmont, Colo., at around 6:45 p.m. on Thursday and shoved a note in the teller’s face announcing the stick up.
“She indicated she had AIDS and would give it to the teller if she didn’t cooperate,” Longmont Police spokesman Jeff Satur said.
The crooked codger was working hard to sell her story – she kept coughing into a blue bandana throughout the heist, cops said.
The terrified teller handed over a bag of cash – cops didn’t say how much – and the robber walked out without flashing a weapon.
Authorities released surveillance photos from inside the bank and were reviewing footage from outside the building.
Cops said the woman was between 55 and 75, around 5-feet-6 and 130 or 140 pounds.
