The bank robber in pink has been caught, according to police.

Prince George’s County police say they have arrested a Landover woman who admitted to robbing two banks last year while donning all pink.

Ariel Symone McFarlin, 23, was arrested after investigators received an anonymous tip in the case, authorities said.

Police had been searching for a woman who robbed a bank on Annapolis Road and another on Eastern Avenue since December. In both cases, surveillance images released by police showed a woman at a bank teller’s window in a pink head scarf and jacket while holding a pink phone.
