The FBI and Lawton Police Department are searching for a woman who walked out of a Lawton bank with a wad of stolen cash.

Just after 5 p.m. Thursday, the woman approached a teller at Arvest Bank at S.W. 52nd Street and S.W. Lee Boulevard. She handed bank employees a note ordering them to stay calm and give her money. Workers complied and the woman left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.
