SOLANA BEACH, Calif. — A woman who claimed to have a concealed gun robbed a coastal North County bank Wednesday.

The thief, who appeared to be in her late 20s or early 30s, handed a demand note to a cashier at the Wells Fargo branch office in the 200 block of Santa Helena in Solana Beach shortly before 11:30 a.m., according to the FBI.

The written message stated that the bandit was armed and demanded that the clerk hand over all the $20, $50 and $100 bills at the teller station. No weapon was seen.

The robber fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

Witnesses described her as a roughly 5-foot-6-inch, 200-to 250-pound black woman with shoulder-length hair. She was wearing an orange dress or skirt, a black cardigan sweater, a large black sun hat and sunglasses.
