Bank robber sought by detectives


King County Sheriff's Office detectives need the public's help to identify a male suspect in a bank robbery at the Klahanie Wells Fargo.



King County Sheriff's Office detectives are investigating a bank robbery that occurred on Wednesday March 12 at the Wells Fargo Bank at 4528 Klahanie Dr SE.  The incident took place at about 6:00 pm, when an unknown male entered the bank, robbed it, and left the store before police were notified.  No weapon was used by the suspect and the whole incident lasted only a few minutes.


The shopping area was very busy during that evening hour and investigators got good assistance from several citizen witnesses.  Though the investigation is ongoing, the cooperation received from those witnesses may prove to be crucial.


KCSO detectives are pursuing leads in the case and soon hope to identify the suspect.  This is the first bank robbery at this Wells Fargo, going back almost ten years.


If you recognize this suspect, please contact the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311.
