Snohomish bank robber makes escape on foot

Herald staff

SNOHOMISH — Even though officers responded within 30 seconds of a bank robbery and used a helicopter and police dogs, the robber got away Monday.

Officers received a 911 call at 3:53 p.m. at the Everett Mutual Bank, 1325 Ave. D.

The robber implied he had a weapon, but it was not seen, a Snohomish Police Department news release said.

He fled on foot, and a search led toward Top Foods and later through Ferguson Park and into the Blackmans Lake area.

The suspect is described as a white man, age 30-40, with a pock-marked face and wearing sunglasses. He was wearing a navy blue pullover sweat shirt and beige shorts. Clothing possibly belonging to the suspect was found.

Anyone with information is asked to call Snohomish police at 360-568-0888.

  • No poisoning: Snohomish County Fire District 8 paramedics checked a 13-month-old boy for possible poisoning after his mother found him holding a bottle of lacquer thinner to his mouth.

    Paramedics were called to a residence in the 1300 block of Vernon Road at about 4 p.m. Monday. Fire district officials said the bottle wasn’t open, but there may have been drops around the sealed edge, so the boy was taken to a nearby hospital. He was later dismissed after it was determined that he did not ingest any of the liquid.

  • Woman airlifted after accident: A 79-year-old Arlington woman was taken by helicopter to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle on Monday after she lost control of the vehicle she was driving.

    Ann G. Simonson was reported in serious condition with injuries to her head, ankle and right hand.

    She was eastbound on Highway 530 when her car left the roadway to the right and struck a guardrail. The accident happened at 2 p.m. at the intersection of Highway 530 and 171st Avenue NE. Her 1993 Geo Metro was totaled in the accident.
