According to the Danville police, the suspect entered the bank wearing black trousers, a black t-shirt, sunglasses, a cap and "what appeared to be a painted on beard." The initial description released by police mentioned that the robber was slender and 5 feet and 8 inches tall, but did not specify the person's gender.
The 36-year-old woman, identified as Jennifer Rae McClary, allegedly handed over a note demanding money to the teller at the bank. She did not display a weapon and fled the bank immediately after the robbery.
It turns out the woman was a former police officer. She reportedly left the department in 2010 when she failed to meet probationary standards after working for just under 18 months, KGO-TV reports Sergeant Bryce Angel as saying.
According to local media reports, she was booked on charges of robbery and possession of a controlled substance at a local detention facility.
