COTTONDALE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a woman who dressed like a man and drew a beard on her face has robbed an Alabama bank.

Police say the suspect robbed the Cottondale branch of the Bank of Tuscaloosa and she may have been involved in another bank heist earlier this month.

Witnesses told officers she had a "drawn on" beard when she entered the bank. Police say she told tellers she had a bomb and demanded money after placing a device on a counter.

She took an undisclosed amount of money and then fled the scene.

The FBI and local police are investigating.
