An arrest warrant has been issued for a 32-year-old woman who is accused of jumping over the counter at a bank in Buford, stealing $750 and threatening the clerk with scissors, according to Gwinnett County police.

The woman was identified as Sarahdia Camell of Long Beach, California, police said Friday in a news release.

Camell became angry after the Chase Bank clerk notified her of some discrepancies with her credentials, police said. She climbed over the counter, picked up some nearby scissors and held them toward the clerk, authorities said. After taking money from the cash box, she left the bank through a side door, according to police.

Video from the scene captures the confusion as the woman clambers over the high counter and past the clear protective shield. She can be heard loudly arguing with a teller as she confronts him as he raises his fists in a defensive posture. Another customer at the next teller’s window watched the situation unfold without moving.

Camell’s whereabouts are unknown, police said.

To remain anonymous, tipsters should contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or visit Crime Stoppers tipsters can receive a cash reward for information leading to an arrest or indictment in this case.
