The man is suspected of at least six other bank robberies in Bothell and Woodinville, according to a FBI news release sent out Thursday. The first happened Jan. 30. The rest have been since May.
Monroe detectives have joined regional and federal police forces in the hunt for the man dubbed the "Tour de Banks Robber."
Monroe's robbery happened 10:30 a.m. Monday at the Washington Federal bank on U.S. 2.
The man donned a mask, pointed a handgun at the tellers, demanded money and rode away on a bike, police said.
The other robberies happened similarly, though some involved knives instead of guns, according to the FBI.
The man wears a black, full-face ski mask to obscure his identity. He also dons gloves, dark caps and dark hoodie-style sweatshirts. He is considered armed and dangerous.
The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
Anyone with information can call Monroe police at 360-794-6300. Anonymous tips can be left at 360-863-4600
People also call other involved agencies, or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS. Crime Stoppers is offering an additional $1,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and charges.
