The Whidbey Island Bank robbery suspect.

Help police find the suspect

On Friday, April 26 at approximately 3:17 p.m. Lake Stevens Police Officers responded to a call after a man robbed Whidbey Island Bank in Frontier Village with an implied weapon.

The suspect, who is described as a white male in his 40s, 5 feet 6 inches tall with a large nose and medium build, entered the bank wearing only sunglasses in what seems to be an effort to hide his face.

The suspect demanded cash from a teller and fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

“Fortunately no one was injured during the course of this crime,” a Lake Stevens Police representative said.

The man was wearing a black hoodie sweatshirt, blue jeans and brown shoes as he headed towards Taco Time in Frontier Village.

“A police K-9 was called to the scene but was unsuccessful in locating the suspect,” LSPD said.

Lake Stevens Police Detectives are currently investigating this case. If you have any information or can identify the suspect in the photo call 911 or 425-334-9537.
