EVERETT — Police were searching for a bank robber around sunset Wednesday in south Everett.
A man handed a threatening note to a teller at Coastal Community Bank around 4:30 p.m. in the 10500 block of 19th Avenue SE, said Everett officer Aaron Snell. The robber fled with cash. Police dogs and officers were searching the neighborhood.
No suspect description was immediately released.
Earlier in the day, a bank robber had eluded arrest in Lynnwood. A tall, thin man walked into a Wells Fargo around 2 p.m. in the 6400 block of 196th Street SW, according to Lynnwood police.
He left with cash. Police said the Lynnwood robber was white, dressed in black, with a black hat and sunglasses.
Detectives were investigating whether the two robberies were connected. But so far, there’s no established link, Snell said. The two banks are about 11 miles apart.
