Edmonds police on Wednesday released a photo of the suspect who allegedly robbed the Edmonds Banner Bank branch in the 7000 block of 212th Street Southwest Tuesday afternoon.
According to Edmonds police spokesman Sgt. Shane Hawley, the suspect entered the bank around 4 p.m. and gave the teller a note implying he had a weapon and demanding cash. The teller gave the suspect around $1,700 and he left on foot. He was not seen getting into any vehicle.
The suspect was described as a white male, between 30-40 years of age. He was around 5-foot-10, weighed around 210 pounds and had short brown hair. He had a long beard from his chin but no mustache. He was wearing blue jeans and a grey, zippered sweatshirt. He was also wearing a light-colored baseball cap.
Investigators are working to determine if this is the same suspect that robbed the Union Bank in Mill Creek on April 1, 2015. That case is being investigated by the Mill Creek Police Department. At the time of that robbery, the suspect was associated with a light-blue 2002 or similar model Ford Thunderbird.
