TPD seeks Taco Bell armed robbery suspect

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Authorities are searching for an armed robbery suspect who targeted an east side Taco Bell.

A woman entered the restaurant in the 6600 block of E. Grant Road on Jan. 30 when it opened at 7 a.m., allegedly pointed a handgun at the clerk and fled southbound with an undisclosed amount of money, according to Tucson Police.

She was gone before police arrived on scene and they were unable to find her in a search of the area.

They determined no one was hurt during the incident.

Tucson Police described the suspect as Hispanic or African American in her late 30s or early 40s, weighs about 130 pounds and stands around 5-feet-tall. She was last seen wearing a dark zippered hoodie, a black baseball cap, blue jeans, black gloves with skeleton fingers on them and a gray nylon stocking to cover her face, according to a news release.

Police said she had a deep, scratchy, Hispanic-style accent.

Anyone with information on the suspect is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
