RICHMOND HEIGHTS, MO (KFVS) - Police are looking for a would-be bank robber who apparently changed her mind midway through the crime.

Richmond Heights Police say a woman entered the Commerce Bank at 7910 Clayton Road on May 19 and handed a note to the teller indicating she had a gun and demanded money.

However, shortly after giving the teller the note, she retrieved her note and left the bank without any money.

The suspect is described as a black female, 5'2 to 5'6, 150 lbs. She was wearing a dark gray jacket, blue jeans, white tennis shoes, and carrying a purple purse. There is no vehicle information at this time.

If anyone has any information that would help lead to the identity of the suspect please call the Richmond Heights Police Department Crime Hotline at 314-655-3555. Calls may be anonymous.
