INDEPENDENCE TWP. (WWJ) – Authorities are searching for a short-stature suspect, possibly a woman, who robbed an Oakland County bank at gunpoint in the middle of the day.

The incident happened Monday at the Comerica Bank on Dixie Highway, between White Lake Road and I-75 in Independence Township. Police say the suspect walked into the bank just after noon and yelled for everyone to put their hands up.

The suspect — who was dressed head-to-toe in black, including gloves and a full ski mask — implied that they held a gun, according to police, and demanded that tellers fill a bag with cash.
