The Bellingham Herald reports the latest bank robbery happened Friday afternoon. The man — wearing a cream-colored striped shirt and a black hat — walked into the Lakeway Drive branch of the bank around 3:40 p.m. Friday and slipped a note to the teller, demanding cash.
Bellingham Police Lt. Bob Vander Yacht says he did not flash a gun or weapon.
Police and U.S. Border Patrol helicopters scoured the area but couldn’t find him. A police dog tracked a scent that disappeared, leaving officers thinking he might have jumped into a vehicle.
The previous robbery happened July 18 where the robber wore a black hat and sunglasses. Security footage showed he escaped in a green mid-’90s Land Rover Discovery.
