The teller at the Wells Fargo bank, 4325 198th St. SW, told Lynnwood police that the note read, "No alarms, no signs, give me all the money you have in your drawer, and I also have a device that will blow up with my cell phone."
He indicated that the explosive device would pick up a signal from five miles away, court papers said.
She described the suspect, 52, as an older man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt pulled up over his head, sunglasses and blue jeans.
A man matching his description was stopped by police a few minutes later and identified by the teller. He was found in possession of $1,416 in cash and a Wells Fargo envelope that had some damaged bills inside, according to court papers.
The man also had a warrant out for his arrest for investigation of three counts of child molestation in King County.
