10 in Princeton.

That’s the word from the Princeton Police Department this week.

The US Bank at 27 33rd Avenue North in St. Cloud was robbed shortly after 3:30 p.m. on May 17. The robber approached a bank teller and displayed a note implying she had a weapon. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the robber fled on foot, northbound on 33rd Avenue North, according to the FBI bureau office in Minneapolis.

The robber is described as a female, approximately 30 to 40 years old, 5’5” to 5’8”, approximately 150 pounds and wearing baggy clothes.

The suspect bears some similarity to a person who robbed the Peoples Bank of Commerce in Princeton on February 10.

The suspect in the Princeton robbery was described by authorities as an adult Caucasian female, 5’3” to 5’6” in height with a thin build, who was wearing dark-colored sunglasses and had her face partially covered. The robber was wearing a black winter jacket, black hat and blue jeans and, like the St. Cloud robber, left on foot.

A suspect in the Princeton bank robbery has yet to be apprehended.

“We’re in the process of working with the St. Cloud Police Department, the FBI and other agencies,” Investigator Todd Frederick said. “But right now it’s too early to tell if they are the same people.”

If anyone has any information regarding the St. Cloud or Princeton robberies, they are asked to contact the FBI at (763) 569-8000, the Princeton Police Department at (763) 389-4879 or the St. Cloud Police Department at (320) 251-1200.
