I asked Commerce Bank about the woman being able to use a someone else's I.D. twice to withdraw large sums of money.
Their director of security says, "People who conduct this type of activity generally are adept at making someone believe that they are the person they are portraying. They alter how they look, are able to produce multiple forms of identification, and act in every way like a normal customer so that they don't draw attention to themselves."
If you recognize the woman, call St. Peters or O'Fallon, MO police. I've provided direct contact information below.
