The FBI nicknamed her the “Pink Lady Bandit” because of the pink handbag she used while robbing multiple banks in several states.

The FBI announced Monday that two suspects have been arrested in connection with the bank robberies along the East Coast.

Police in Charlotte, N.C., arrested Circe Baez, 35, and her suspected accomplice, Alexis Morales, 38, on Sunday.

The FBI had offered a $10,000 reward for the arrest of a woman accused of robbing banks in Pennsylvania, Delaware and North Carolina between July 20 and July 26.

The suspects are being held at the Pitt County Detention Center in Greenville, N.C., on a $4 million bond.

Gilroy Mass Shooter Posted White Supremacist Manifesto Before Opening Fire

About an hour before opening fire at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California on Sunday, the 19-year-old gunman posted about a white supremacist manifesto on Instagram.

Santino William Legan, who killed three people and injured 15 others, encouraged his Instagram followers to read, “Might Is Right or the Survival of the Fittest,” a fringe book that describes black and Jewish people as inferior and advocates for women as property.

The Instagram post, reported by the San Francisco Chronicle and other publications, has been removed.

“Books play a big role in the white supremacist movement,” Peter Simi, a professor of sociology at Chapman University in Southern California who studies political extremism and violence, told the Chronicle. “Posting (about a book) is a clear shout to say the reason I’m doing this violence is not just personal but to say I’m acting on behalf of a larger movement.”

The shooting follows congressional testimony by FBI Director Christopher Wray, who said most domestic terrorism cases in the past nine months have been “motivate by some version of what you might call white supremacist violence.”

“Read Might Is Right by Ragnar Redbeard. Why overcrowd towns and pave more open space to make room for hordes of mestizos and Silicon Valley white twats?” Legan wrote.

Legan was killed by police shortly after he opened fire.

The FBI and ATF are helping local police investigate.
