Police are hunting a lardy female robber who was caught on CCTV holding up a bank while wearing a Batman-style cloak.

The woman casually walked into the Yorkshire Bank on the High Street, in Grantham, Lincs., on the afternoon of April 30.

She demanded money from staff from behind the counter after telling them she has a gun concealed beneath her long black cloak.

After terrified cashiers handed over a “quantity of money” she then fled on foot from the scene at around 2.30pm.

Lincolnshire Police released pictures of the suspect in an attempt to track her down.

In the still images taken from the bank’s CCTV security system the podgy bank robber can be seen looking directly at the cameras before she struck.

Another shows her calmly walking towards the doors as she makes her escape.

A spokesman for Lincolnshire Police said: “At 2.30pm a woman entered the premises and demanded money from staff. She claimed she had a gun but no weapon was seen.

“The woman made off with a quantity of cash and was seen turning right out of the premises onto the High Street, towards Vine Street and the Angel & Royal Hotel.

“She is described as wearing black vest top, black trousers, and had a black coat over her head.

“She had dark hair, was of medium to large build, and was thought to have been aged around 30 or 40.”

Police are asking anybody with information to contact them on 101 quoting incident 250 of April 30, 2014 or to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
