Seattle bank robber not exactly camera shy

Who knows, maybe Umpqua Bank is “the world’s greatest bank.” But this dude is clearly not the world’s greatest bank robber.

At least he’s not the brightest

That could explain why he didn’t bother to shield his face when he robbed the bank’s branch at 6402 Roosevelt Way N.E. just before 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. The man handed a teller a demand note and implied that he was armed.

He is described as a black man in his 20s, about 6 feet tall. He had a goatee.

If you recognize him, give the FBI a call at 206-622-0460.
