Authorities are searching for a woman accused of robbing a bank and claiming to have a bomb.

According to the FBI, the suspect approached the Chase bank on January 12th at 12:21 p.m. and left a red gas can outside the building near Southern Avenue and Country Club Drive.

When the woman entered the bank, she requested a pen and paper from a teller.  She quickly wrote a demand note stating that the gas can was a bomb.

The woman left the bank with a known amount of currency at a fast pace on foot.

The suspect is described as a black female, 28 to 35-years-old, 5' 2" to 5' 4" tall with a medium build.  She was last seen wearing a black hoodie and black sport type sunglasses with a dark or gray tint.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
