Four police departments have banded together to catch a robber who’s been hitting banks in Snohomish and King counties.

He is described as white and in his mid-20s, with short, light brown hair. He is about 5-foot-10, with a thin to medium build.

He may have a tattoo on the inside of his left leg.
