OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

According to authorities, a female suspect wearing a black hoodie and black sunglasses displayed to knives and demanded money from a bank teller. After handing over the money, police believe the suspect may have then robbed a customer. 

As she was running to her car, the suspect reportedly fell down, causing the red dye pack in the bag of money to explode.
