A scarf-wearing, green bag-carrying female bank robber had a busy Friday and Saturday, hitting three banks in New Jersey in less than 24 hours.

Her crime spree began shortly before noon Friday at the Wells Fargo Bank, 4306 Route 130 North in Willingboro. The woman, described as possibly 40 to 50 years old and dressed in all black, including a scar on her head, gave a note demanding money to a bank teller at the Burlington County location.

The robber "received a quantity of money," police said.

Seven hours later, the robber struck several towns north at the TD Bank in Hamilton Township, Mercer County. At 6:30 p.m., the robber entered the bank at 1130 Whitehouse-Hamilton Square Road, again wearing all black and a scarf on her head, again passed a note to a teller. She made off "with an unknown amount of money," police said.

Following those two successful heists, the robber struck a third time about 9 a.m. Saturday morning. She stayed in Hamilton Township, robbing the TD Bank at 3470 Quakerbridge Road by using the same note-passing tactic.

Hamilton police described the suspect as a white female, 50 to 60 years old, with dark sunglasses and a bright green handbag. She may have fled in an older model, black Honda sedan.

"We are aware of the Hamilton bank robberies and the similarities of the suspect in the different series of photos," Willingboro police Lt. Chris Vetter said Saturday. "Our detectives continue to investigate our robbery and are looking into the possibility of the same suspect being linked to the other robberies."

Anyone with any information about the Hamilton robberies is asked to contact Detective Matthew Donovan or Detective Frank Burger at (609) 581-4030 or (609) 581-4010. Information may also be reported to the Hamilton Police Crime Tip Hotline at 609-581-4008.
