The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a white SUV and a female suspect after an armed robbery in the Olympia area.

About 11 a.m. Tuesday, the suspect, described as a woman, entered Our Community Credit Union at 6541 Sexton Drive NW, according to the sheriff’s office. That location is near Steamboat Island.

After she entered the credit union, she produced a note and a firearm before demanding cash. She left with an undisclosed amount of money and fled in a white Mercedes 450 SUV with no front license plate, according to the sheriff’s office.

The woman is described as 5-foot-5 with light skin, dark hair and a slender build.

She was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt under a blue coat, with black sweatpants and black shoes with white soles. The woman also was wearing red-rimmed sunglasses, according to the sheriff’s office.
