Tumwater police are investigating a robbery of a KeyBank branch today by a suspect whose description closely matches that of a woman who robbed a U.S. Bank branch in Tacoma on Dec. 22.
At 11:05 a.m. Wednesday, employees at the Tumwater bank, in the 5400 block of Capitol Boulevard, reported that a woman walked in through the front door, approached a teller and handed the employee a note demanding money. The suspect’s note implied that she was armed.
The teller complied, and the woman left the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
The suspect is described as a white female, about 5 feet, 5 inches to 5 feet, 7 inches tall, with a stocky build and a fair to medium complexion with freckles on her face and blond hair.
She wore a pink baseball cap, light-colored sunglasses and a black zip-up jacket with a white zip-up fleece underneath. She also was wearing black gloves, black pants and black shoes.
Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the Tumwater Police Department at 360-754-4200.
