    She was dressed up and ready to steal $160,000. That’s what Miramar Police Detectives said a woman was trying to do at a Wells Fargo branch two months ago. NBC 6's Claudia DoCampo reports.

    She was dressed up and ready to steal $160,000. That’s what Miramar Police Detectives said a woman was trying to do at a Wells Fargo branch two months ago.

    “The suspect walked in not concealing herself in any way, walked in very boldly. I think detectives believe that she did this because she didn’t want to raise any additional suspicions,” said Miramar Police public information officer Tania Rues.

    Detectives said the suspect opened up an account and tried to then get a cashier’s check from the victims account into hers. According to Rues, “there was something that the teller found to be a little bit suspicious and withheld giving her the cashier’s check for $160,000.”

    Rues continued, “The suspect at this time walked out of the bank and when the bank employee looked at it further, then realized the victim’s identity was compromised.”

    Detectives are hoping someone will recognize her. If you recognize the woman in the still photos, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
