Recent bank robberies in Edmonds, Stanwood and Poulsbo have been committed by someone fitting the same profile and police across the North Puget Sound area are seeking help in finding him, said Sgt. Michael Blackburn of the Edmonds Police Department.

In each robbery, the suspect has been a white male in his 20s wearing black tape across his nose and using a black semi-automatic handgun according to security camera images. He’s been seen wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, beige shirt, blue jeans, a dirty white “Hurley” brand ball cap, a dark gray hooded sweatshirt, and tennis shoes. He’s also described as approximately 5-foot-8l, of  medium build and with short light brown hair.

The most recent robbery was at 2:24 p.m., June 20, at a Wells Fargo Bank in Edmonds. Witnesses saw the man running west from the bank, across the street and into the QFC parking lot at 22828 100th Ave. W., according to a police statement. At about 2 p.m. on June 7, a similar suspect robbed the Key Bank in Poulsbo at 19735 10th Ave. N.E., and on at around noon, May 24, a similar suspect robbed the Whidbey Island Bank at 26317 72nd Ave. N.W. in Stanwood.
