NIPOMO, Calif. - San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a bank robbery that happened at the Coast Hills Federal Credit Union in Nipomo on Thursday.
Authorities were called out to the bank around 4:30pm, which is located on West Tefft Street.
A Hispanic female entered the bank, demanded money and then walked off with an undisclosed amount of money. A weapon was mentioned, but none was seen.
Sheriff's detectives along with crime scene investigators are currently processing the scene along with the FBI.
"The bank was open for business so there were a number of witnesses involved, and so we are in the process of interviewing all of those witnesses," said Tony Cipolla, Public Information Officer for the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department.
The suspect is being described as a Hispanic female between 35-40 years old, 5'7", with a heavy set build. She was last seen wearing large blue tinted sunglasses with a black vest over a lighter undershirt.
