North bend bank robber still at large

NORTH BEND - The man suspected of robbing a bank Aug. 13 in North Bend is still at large.

The bank, a Bank of America branch on Bendigo Boulevard, was robbed about 12:30 p.m. last Monday by a man acting alone.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is handling the case, released pictures last Friday that were taken by a security camera during the robbery in hopes of garnering some leads.

The FBI said there has been no connection established between the North Bend suspect and other Eastside bank robberies in Bellevue and Kirkland last week.

Officials said the man, who appeared unarmed, handed the teller a note with demands. While giving the man his money, a silent alarm was tripped by the teller after removing a particular stack of money. By the time officers responded to the scene, the man had already left the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

No one was hurt in the robbery.

The suspect is described as a white male in his mid- to late 20s. He is about 5 foot 9 inches tall, weighs about 150 pounds and looks as though he had a day's worth of beard growth. He was wearing blue jeans, a blue baseball cap and a blue and white plaid shirt over a white T-shirt.

* Anyone with any information about the robbery is encouraged to call the FBI office in Seattle at (206) 622-0460.
