At approximately 10:30 a.m., Banks County deputies received a report of an armed robbery that had already occurred at Northeast Georgia Bank, located at 30990 U.S. Highway 441, Commerce. The suspect was described as a thin, white female in her early to mid-30s with blond hair. Witnesses stated she stood approximately 5 feet 4 inches tall, wearing a white T-shirt and brown shorts. She was observed with a black bandana on her head, but removed it after fleeing the bank.
At the time of the robbery, the suspect was armed with a gun and left the business on foot toward Days Inn & Suites. Witnesses advised she partially presented the firearm in a bag to employees. 
A vehicle of interest has been identified as a blue/gray Dodge Caravan with a New York license plate displayed on the front bumper. The vehicle is believed to be a 2006 or 2007 model.
The Banks County Sheriff’s Office has released the information to surrounding counties located off the I-85 corridor, which includes counties in South Carolina. Anyone who has information regarding the vehicle or suspect’s whereabouts is urged to call 911 immediately.
