San Francisco police release pictures of woman suspected in robbing credit union twice 

Police say this baggy-clothed bandit struck the same credit union near San Francisco’s Stonestown Galleria Mall for a second time in less than two weeks on Monday.

The gun-toting crook robbed the SF Fire Credit Union at 565 Buckingham Way around 1:30 p.m. She showed the 19-year-old teller her handgun, demanded cash, then fled the area in a white two-door late 1990s car, possibly a Chevrolet, police said.

The same creature of habit robbed the credit union on July 15, police said.

Monday’s heist prompted the credit union to close its doors to allow employees to “regroup,” senior vice president Glenn Gortney said. The credit union was expected to reopen at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, he said.

“We regret any inconvenience this may be causing to our membership, but we feel, under the circumstances, they’ll understand why we are taking this action,” Gortney said Tuesday.

The thief was described as a black woman in her mid to late 30s, standing about 5 feet 6 inches, weighing 200 pounds and with neck-length corn-roll hair. During the heist, she wore clear eyeglasses, a brown hooded sweatshirt with a zipper, blue jeans and dark shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call San Francisco police at (415) 575-444 or text a tip at “TIP411.”
