Police are looking for a woman who allegedly claimed to have a bomb as she robbed a Rite Aid in Hatfield Township earlier this week.

The woman was caught on surveillance video walking into the store at 1856 N. Broad St. shortly after 2 p.m. Sunday.

Police said she walked around as if shopping while waiting for a lone cashier to be working up front.

She then allegedly presented a demand note announcing a robbery and claiming she had a bomb strapped to her.

Police said she opened her jacket, displaying a device taped around her waist.

The woman fled in an unknown direction after the clerk handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, according to investigators.

She is described as a 5-foot-4-inch tall, 130-pound white female in her 50s with brown hair and a narrow face with deep lines in the skin below her lips. She appeared to walk with a slight limp, favoring her right leg, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hatfield Township Police Department Detective Division at 215-855-0903, or via email.
