Man pleads guilty to bank robbery — then allegedly robs bank

The suspect was out of jail briefly to see his terminally ill mother. He didn’t return.

EVERETT — An Everett man who had just pleaded guilty to going on a bank robbery spree was arrested Friday for investigation of another robbery — during a brief release to visit his sick mother.

Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Marybeth Dingledy ordered the man, 50, to be released Wednesday to see his mother, who reportedly was in hospice care for throat cancer. He had just pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery, and he was supposed to return to jail by 5 p.m. that day.

He didn’t turn himself in though, according to Everett police. Then, around noon Friday, he allegedly arrived at the U.S. Bank in the 7600 block of Evergreen Way, went up to an employee, said he had a gun, demanded money and fled, according to police.

Officers did not disclose how much money he’s accused of taking. Bank employees did not report any injuries.

Everett police searched the area but didn’t find the man. Meanwhile, since the suspect had yet to come back to jail, the Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force went looking for him and found him in Edmonds. The suspect was booked into the Snohomish County Jail without further incident.

His earlier robberies took place at banks in Bothell and Marysville. Prosecutors alleged he robbed four in one week, including two in King County. A sentencing hearing had been set for Tuesday.

Previously, the man was convicted in the early 2000s of robbing banks in Lynnwood.
