Man suspected in Edmonds Key Bank robbery attempt arrested Friday

A 26-year-old man was arrested in Everett Friday in connection with a bank robbery that occurred at a Woodinville bank and the attempted robbery of an Edmonds bank last week.

The arrest was the result of a joint investigation between detectives from the King County Sheriff’s Office, the Edmonds Police Department and the F.B.I. The investigation led to the identification of the suspect, who was arrested at a home in the 2100 block of Wetmore Avenue in Everett around 3:30 p.m. Friday.

The man is suspected of attempting to rob the new Key Bank in Edmonds’ Westgate neighborhood Oct. 22; he approached the teller and said he had a gun but fled prior to getting any money, police said.

At approximately 5:30 p.m. the same day, the suspect entered the US Bank in the 13200 block of Northeast 175th Street in Woodinville. The suspect scribbled a note on a deposit slip and then presented it to the teller, demanding money and claiming to have a gun. He was given money and was seen fleeing in a white Jeep Cherokee.

The suspect will be booked into the King County Jail for investigation of first-degree robbery and first-degree attempted robbery.
