The Post-Dispatch has gone with the "believed to be female" thing. And that write-up has this additional close-up shot:

The P-D also notes that this suspect may have robbed two or three other places.

But apparently not enough times to get a close enough look.

Here's the full alert:

The Columbia Police Department and the FBI are investigating a bank robbery that occurred today around 1:02pm. One suspect entered the Commerce Bank and handed the teller a note stating that they had a gun and wanted the money. The teller complied and gave the suspect an unknown amount of United States Currency. The gender of the suspect is unknown at this time.

The suspect was inside the bank for just over a minute and a half. The suspect then left through a door that led to an adjoining grocery store, The Market Place. Video from the bank and store caught the suspect on video.

A photograph of the suspect is attached. Anyone with information on this suspect is asked to call the Columbia Police Department at 618-281-5151, the FBI at 618-394-5630 or Crimestoppers at 1-866-371-8477.

Colonel Joseph A. Edwards,
Chief of Police
