CROMWELL, CT (WFSB) -

A serial bank robber has struck again, this time in Cromwell.

Five heists in the state have been reported in the last 11 days, all involving a female robber.

Police have confirmed that all of the robberies are connected.

The latest robbery happened at the Webster Bank in Cromwell on Coles Road at 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

Police said for the last week-and-a-half, one woman has been wreaking havoc at local banks.

She scares tellers and customers, and now police are asking the public to help find her.

On Tuesday, police said the suspect gave a note to the teller at the Webster Bank, demanded cash and said she had a gun.

She got away with $700, but after a dye pack exploded, she tossed the bag and police recovered all of the money.

The other robberies started on Feb. 6, when she went to the United Bank inside of the ShopRite on Main Street in East Hartford.

Four days later the People's United Bank at Tri-City Plaza in Vernon was hit.

Then, on Feb. 12, she attempted to rob the People's Bank in Wallingford.

The next day she was on to Wethersfield, robbing the Liberty Bank on the Silas Deane Highway.

The robber is described as a female in her early 20s, about 5' 6" and about 140 pounds.

Cromwell police said the suspect is definitely the same in all of the cases.

“The banks and their surveillance photos are very good and through her description, it's pretty clear what we have,” said Cromwell Police Captain Denise Lamontagne.

No injuries have been reported in any of the robberies.
