A woman robbed a Kansas City, North bank Monday and then apparently tried to rob a credit union not far away.
Both banks were inside Northland grocery stores.
The robbery happened about 11:40 a.m. at the Capitol Federal Savings Bank inside the Price Chopper store at 500 N.E. Barry Road, authorities said. The woman, whom authorities described as heavy-set, was wearing a U.S. Air Force track suit, a winter cap and sunglasses.
She walked up to the teller station, presented a note and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. She left in what appeared to be a blue four-door Nissan Altima.
Never miss a local story.
About a half-hour later, at 12:08 p.m., a woman fitting the same description approached the CommunityAmerica Credit Union inside the Hy-Vee store at 5330 N.W. 64th St. and tried to rob it but was unsuccessful, authorities said.
The locations are about five miles apart.
