Granny Greenbacks hits three banks in Chester

A black female about 45 to 55 years of age and about 5-feet 3-inches tall is suspected of robbing three banks within a half-of-a-mile stretch of West Hundred Road during a one-month period.

The first robbery was of the Wells Fargo Bank branch at 4400 W. Hundred Rd. on Thursday, July 12. The second robbery occurred at the Bank of Southside Virginia, 4310 W. Hundred Rd., on Monday, Aug. 6. The most recent robbery happened on Monday, Aug. 13, at the Virginia Commonwealth Bank branch at 4600 W. Hundred Rd.

No one has been injured during the robberies. Nicknamed Granny Greenbacks, the woman enters the bank, approaches the teller and hands the teller a note, sometimes displaying a gun and demands money. In all three cases the woman has left the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

While dressing different each time she has always worn an auburn-color wig and sunglasses. One officer said, after the Virginia Commonwealth Bank robbery, that the woman can also be recognized by her pink fingers due to a red dye pack, typically mixed-in with the money, exploding in the bag of money, she has obtained.

Anyone with information should contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660 or text the code “WATSON” and send to 274637 (CRIMES).
