On 10/3/11 at about 10:00 am SPD was called to the Wells Fargo branch inside of the Albertson’s at 2785 N. Scottsdale Rd. for a bank robbery call.
When officers arrived they were informed that the female suspect entered the bank with a cup in her hand and demanded cash. She stated that she would light a fire if she didn’t get money. The suspect then proceeded to pour the contents of the cup on the counter and light the liquid on fire. The liquid was flammable but the flame extinguished itself rather quickly and the suspect fled without obtaining any cash. The suspect was seen driving a silver 4 door sedan, westbound through the parking lot.
No one was injured.
