Last Wednesday, someone described by witnesses as an old lady robbed a Pima County bank with a handgun.

According to the Pima County Sheriff's Office, a woman believed to be between the ages of 60 and 70 went into the Bank of the West in the 3,000 block of South Kinney Road last Wednesday afternoon, flashed a piece, and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

It seems pretty clear to us that the robber is an old woman, but there's been speculation that suspect is actually a man dressed as a little old lady.

We want to know what you think, though: is the robber an old lady or a guy dressed as one?
