Bad day to be working in, or visiting, a bank.

Four Houston banks were robbed today, the FBI says.

One woman hit up two in the same strip center, which is certainly a time-saving strategy that should be applauded, if it wasn't for the whole robbing-a-bank part. Or the fact that the 60-year-old got arrested shortly after her escapade.

"Witnesses at both robberies gave police a licens- plate number and patrol officers quickly tracked the vehicle and subject down a short distance away," FBI spokesperson Shauna Dunlap said. The two banks were in the 4800 block of West Bellfort.

Upcoming Events

Today's spree comes on the heels of the "Grandad Bandit" robbing a downtown bank.

Customers, beware: If you see any older women or men in the bank with you, head for the door.
