LAPD Hunting for Female Robber

Armed Woman Sought in Coin Shop Robbery



    The LAPD is looking for an armed woman who robbed a Van Nuys coin shop.

    Los Angeles police detectives hope that photos made public Tuesday will lead them to the woman who robbed a Van Nuys coin shop at gunpoint.

    The holdup occurred about 11 a.m. Sept. 19 near Sepulveda Boulevard and Burbank Boulevard, according to a police statement.

    The woman, believed to be in her 20s, pointed a gun at an employee and ordered him to fill her bag. She left on foot in an unknown direction.

    The woman was about 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighed about 125 pounds. She was wearing a white blouse, blue jeans and high-heeled sandals, and carrying a black and white colored purse.

    Police said the robber should be considered armed and dangerous.

    Anyone with information about the suspect should call Van Nuys Division robbery Detective G. O'Shea at (818) 374-0087, or (877) 527-3247 after hours and on weekends.
