Robbers made off with cash in two holdups Wednesday, one at an Everett bank and one at a payday loan center in the Mukilteo area.
The bank robbery occurred about 1 p.m. when a man walked into the Bank of America branch in the 1800 block of 112th Street Southeast and demanded money from a teller. The robber fled on foot with an undisclosed amount, heading south and then west, Everett Police Sgt. Boyd Bryant said.
A police dog was unable to track the robber.
That robbery was the fourth at a bank in the Everett area since last Thursday.
Police described the robber as a white man, about 6 feet 2 inches tall, medium build, wearing a gray sweat shirt with the sleeves cut off and a bright green, wool beanie cap.
Police ask anyone with information to call the Everett Police Department tip line at 425-257-8450.
The second holdup occurred about 3:50 p.m. at Loan Mart Payday Loans in the 13600 block of Highway 525.
A young man walked in, demanded money and displayed a revolver, Snohomish County sheriff’s spokeswoman Jan Jorgensen said.
The teller gave him money, which he put in a bag, then fled on foot. A police dog also searched for that robber but was unable to track him, she said. He may have escaped in a vehicle.
She described the robber as a white man, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing bluejeans and a gray, hooded sweat shirt that may have had a college logo on it. His face was covered by a dark bandana.
Investigators don’t know whether the gunman may have committed other recent robberies as well, she said.
Detectives ask anyone with information to call the sheriff’s tip line at 425-388-3845.
