Police are looking for a young woman who is suspected in two bank robberies and one attempted bank robbery within one hour on Tuesday afternoon.Investigators say the woman first struck the Columbia Savings Bank on the 500 block of Berlin-Cross Keys Road in Gloucester Township at 11:57 a.m. She handed a teller-in-training a note demanding money, but the teller refused.

The woman took back the note and left the bank without any cash.

She then drove to The Bank on the 200 block of Route 73 in Berlin Township, police say, and handed another demand note to a teller there. She received an undisclosed amount of money at 12:13 p.m.

She again asked for the demand note back.

It is believed the woman drove to another bank, a TD Bank branch on Route 73 in Evesham. At 12:50 p.m. she handed a teller a note there and left with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police say the suspect did not show a weapon and her note did not suggest that she had a weapon.

The woman drove between banks but a clear description of her vehicle was not available.

The suspect is described as an African-American woman, age 17 to 20, with a thin build and orange streaks in her hair. She wore a striped shirt, dark pants and a knit cap with a brim.

Police say she does not match the description of any other bank robbers sighted in the area recently.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Camden County Prosecutor's Office Investigator Bill Townsend at (856) 225-8400, the Gloucester Township Police Department at (856) 228-4500, the Berlin Township Police Department at (856) 767-5878, or the Evesham Police Department at (856) 983-4699.
