[UPDATE] 2-7 6:32pm by Lanetra Bennett

Tallahassee resident Travis Davis said, "Most of the time it be a black person like me."

But, Davis is not the suspect.

The suspect description in a robbery spree down North Monroe Street in Tallahassee is quite the opposite:

Female, white, thin, about five feet four inches tall.

Davis said, "That's surprising. I don't think that's something a woman should do at all. I don't think that's something nobody should do; not rob. You should get a job and work for what you want."

Police say the woman tried to rob someone at the ATM at Wachovia Bank around 10:30 Friday night.

About 30 minutes later, she held up the TCBY.

Then, around 6:00 Saturday morning, officers say the woman went into the Shell Gas Station near the interstate.

Kim Vickers works off of North Monroe Street. She said, "You don't usually expect a young woman with a gun pointing at you to do that. I'm already afraid to get out anyway, so, I'm always constantly looking around. Now, this is somebody I wouldn't even suspect."

Police say the fourth robbery happened across the street from Shell at the Super 8 Motel 44 minutes later.

Officers say the woman was seen wearing a pink hooded jacket, and a green hooded jacket, and may have been wearing pajama type pants.

Male or female, police say if someone's pointing a gun at you--always comply.

Police say the gun the woman carries appears to be real.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 850-574-TIPS (8477).
