Witnesses from all the cases gave police similar descriptions of a young, slim woman with brown hair.
In each case, the woman waited in the bank's customer service line, and once she got to the counter, produced a note demanding cash. She would immediately leave after receiving an undisclosed amount of money, said police.
The robberies happened in the afternoons of:
- March 19 — TD Canada Trust at 1216 Centre St. N.
- March 24 — TD Canada Trust at 3630 Brentwood Rd. NW.
- March 26 — Bank of Montreal at 8282 Centre St. N.
Calgary police said they would like to hear from anyone who has information about the woman in the surveillance images.
