Police in Ohio are looking for two young female bank robbers and they believe one of them may be 12-years-old.

The pair held up the 1st National Bank in Symmes Township Tuesday afternoon, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office said in a media release.

“Two unknown suspects entered the bank, walked up to the bank teller, and gave the teller a note demanding money,” the release said. “The teller gave the suspects an undetermined amount of U.S. currency.”

Grainy black-and-white photographs from the bank’s surveillance system show the robbers wearing blue hoodies.

According to officials, the suspects are both African-American. One is approximately 5’4" – 5’5" and of heavy build. The other suspect is thin, 5’ to 5’2" tall, and appears to be approximately 12 years of age.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 513-825-1500.

    Why would a 12-year-old even rob a bank? I know there are probablly many reasons. I still do not know why they would do this. They didn't cover their faces or anything. They just threw their identitys out there.

    What these two punkettes need is a good, hard dose of tearful apologies for 400 years of oppression and cutbacks in midnight basketball programs. That'll show 'em.
