MILWAUKEE- Bank robberies continue to rise in Wisconsin.
So far, in 2014, there have been 79 bank robberies and the FBI office in Milwaukee said they are outpacing their counterparts in Chicago.
On Sunday, Milwaukee's Unsolved Bank Robberies profiled a woman who is wanted by two divisions of the FBI, in two different states.
On July 20, 2013 this suspect walks into a TCF Bank in Racine wearing a wig, sunglasses, a bandage on her arm, and a brightly colored purse.
She passes the teller a demand note saying that she is armed and dangerous.
Eleven days later what's believed to be the same woman robs another bank, this time in O'Fallon Illinois.
She was wearing a very similar outfit and disgiuse.
The FBI said a female bank robber is very rare because women are typically the accomplice to a bank robbery.
Women are often the getaway driver, or the one who cases the bank.
The FBI Milwaukee office said they usually only get a handful of female bank robbers every year or females that are just involved in the robbery itself.
