Bank of America Robbed

UPDATE- 4:55pm

Seattle police are looking for this robber who pulled a gun on a bank teller in a holdup Tuesday afternoon.

Around 11:30 am, the suspect walked into a Bank of America on 34th Avenue W and W McGraw Street in Magnolia, pulled out a gun and demanded money. The suspect then fled out of the bank with the cash. The suspect—who was between 5’2 and 5’5, had a thin build, and was dressed in a black hoodie—was wearing a mask, and witnesses aren’t sure whether the robber was male or female.

If you have any information about this robbery, please contact SPD’s Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5535 or the FBI Safe Streets Task Force at (206) 622-0460

        The correct answer is people addicted to drugs…
        I have a friend working on the bank robbery detail with the FBI here in Seattle…the great majority of bank robbery suspects are drug addicts according to him…in fact he just confirmed it to me again today, when I inquired about this robbery.

    I see from the SPD Twitter feed there was another entry for an armed robbery at 8:01 p.m. at 34th and McGraw. Wonder if this is the same thing or a new robbery? Someone’s pretty desperate apparently.

    Looks female to me.

  6. Looks like he/she is using a metro market bag? Could be a local.

    There are seriously only 3 ways out of Magnolia. Can’t they send 3 units to each bottleneck and watch for the car? I vote for cams at each funnel to ID the license plates if the police can’t dispatch in this fashion.
