She held up the U.S. Bank in Danville on Monday afternoon, June 18, said Danville police Sgt. Troy Craig.
The female suspect, who was described as being toothless, wore a yellow hard hat and robbed the U.S. Bank at 720 San Ramon Valley Blvd. around 4:30 p.m., the Federal Bureau of Investigation reported.
The FBI believed the same woman robbed the West America Bank at 601 Ferry St. in Martinez the previous Friday at 4:25 p.m. She told a teller she had a gun and there were two men with guns waiting outside the bank, according to FBI reports. At this robbery, the suspect wore a yellow construction vest and a white hardhat.
But she was still described by witnesses as being toothless.
"We believe it's the same person that did the robbery in Martinez," said Danville Police Chief Chris Wenzel.
