KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Deputies are searching for a woman who allegedly attempted to rob two banks in the same day.

The first happened at the Fifth Third Bank near Portage Street and Golfview Avenue in Kalamazoo.

Later in the afternoon, investigators believe the same woman tried to rob the Advia Credit Union located at 4308 W Main St.

The same banks were robbed last month, and authorities think the same woman is responsible for those incidents.

The suspect always keeps her face covered with a surgical mask, ski mask or some other fabric. Deputies are still searching for her.
