On Friday, police said the same suspect attempted to rob the Chase Bank inside Fred Meyer on Renton Center Way. She walked away frustrated that the teller didn’t give her any money, police said.

Officers responded, chased the suspect and tased her near the Safeway store. She was taken into custody and booked into the Regional Justice Center in Kent.

Police said the woman had been standing in line at the same Alaska USA Federal Credit Union she’s accused of robbing on Thursday.
