Ogden police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a woman who put a fake explosive device in a bank teller window on Monday, then demanded money from the teller.
The woman went to the drive-up service window of Wasatch Peaks Credit Union, 975 Washington Blvd., and passed a "purported explosive device" to the teller at about 10:20 a.m., according to Ogden police officials.
"The suspect fled the area after her demands for cash weren’t immediately met," the police said in a news release. "The bomb threat was ultimately determined to be a hoax."
Surveillance images show that the suspect appears to be a woman with dark brown or black hair, likely between 45 and 55 years old. She was wearing large aviator-style sunglasses, a blue athletic jacket and a white cloth covering her head. Police say the woman was driving a late 1990s or early 2000s light green Ford Explorer with the stolen license plate number 742PJU.
The Davis County Sheriff’s bomb squad was called to the bank Monday, and determined the device was a battery and wire "made to look like an explosive device," Ogden police officials said.
Anyone with information about the woman is asked to call Ogden police at 801-395-8221 or 801-629-8060.
