Bank Robber Gets Away On Bicycle

From Staff And Wire Reports

Authorities were searching for a man who robbed a north Spokane bank Friday afternoon. The case may be connected to several recent bank robberies.

The man walked into the Seafirst Bank, 12320 N. Highway 395, about 4:15 p.m. He handed the teller a note that said he had a gun, although no weapon was seen, said Spokane County sheriff’s Deputy David Reagan.

The robber stuffed the money down his shirt and escaped eastbound on a black mountain bike, Reagan said.

He was described as white, unshaven, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 150 pounds with dark hair. He was wearing a baseball cap, dark green golf shirt, khaki shorts and sunglasses. , DataTimes
