Staff writerAugust 14, 2013 

Olympia police were investigating a robbery at the HomeStreet Bank in the 700 block of Lilly Road about 12:30 Wednesday afternoon.

Witnesses reported that a man entered the bank, approached the teller and handed her a note demanding money. He fled north on foot through a parking lot after leaving the bank with an undisclosed amount of stolen cash.

No injuries were reported. Olympia police attempted a K-9 track in the area of the bank to pick up the suspect’s trail, but it was unsuccessful.

The suspect is described as a white male who is slight of build. When last seen, he was wearing dark glasses, a light blue baseball cap, a black jacket, and blue jeans.

Anyone with information that may lead to an arrest in connection with the bank robbery is encouraged to call the Olympia Police Department at 360-753-8300 or Thurston County CrimeStoppers at 800-222-8477. CrimeStoppers callers can always remain anonymous.
