Police still searching for woman, getaway driver after south-side bank robbery

Police said an older woman handed the teller a note that said if she didn't give her $20,000, the person she came with would come inside and "shoot everybody."

SAN ANTONIO — A woman entered a bank on the south side, handed the teller a threatening note, and made off with a substantial amount of cash, police said.

This happened Tuesday morning at the IBC Bank located at 938 Southeast Military Drive.

Police at the scene said that an older woman entered the bank and handed the teller a note saying that this is a robbery, and that if the teller didn't give her $20,000, the person she arrived in the car with would come inside and "shoot everybody."

"The teller gets scared of course, she more likely gave more than $20,000. She gets it, she gets in the car, we're still trying to figure out the make of the car looking at the video, and they went westbound," an officer at the scene said.

Police said the woman did not display a weapon, and that they were reviewing security footage to get a better description of the suspect and the vehicle.

This is a developing story.
