Police search for suspect in North Bend bank robbery

At 3:05 p.m., on Thursday, Jan. 25, Snoqualmie police responded to a bank robbery at the North Bend Bank of America located at 128 Bendigo boulevard South.

Captain Nick Almquist said the suspect, a six-foot tall caucasian man, walked into the bank and gave the teller and envelope that had instructions to put all of the 100 and 20 dollar bills inside. There was no visible weapon, and the suspect did not imply he had a weapon, Almquist said. When the suspect left, the teller called the police who found the exchange was caught on the bank’s security video cameras.

From there, police saturated the area and set up a perimeter. The King County K9 unit arrived and tried to track the suspect, but lost his trail when it appeared he had entered a car and drove away.

“Since we don’t have any physical evidence, we are relying on the citizens through social media,” Almquist said. “Plus we are working with the FBI to have them go through their photos of suspected bank robbers who have done this in the past.”

Anyone that recognizes the suspect in the photos should call 911 or 425-888-3333.
