Authorities seek help identifying Graham bank robber

An armed suspect robbed a Key Bank in Graham, Pierce County, just before 1 p.m. today and the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department says it needs help identifying him.

After the man demanded cash from the bank on 22100 block of Meridian Avenue East, he displayed a handgun and said that he had a bomb, according to a sheriff’s department press release.

The man placed the money into a maroon and black backpack and then left an object he claimed was a bomb inside of the lobby before fleeing on foot, according to the release. The object turned out to be a non-lethal metal box with wires in it, said department spokesman Ed Troyer.

Canine units traced his route for about 100 yards into a wooded area with a dirt driveway, Troyer said.

The robber is described as a white male in his 30s, 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-7, and 130 to 150 pounds who was wearing khaki shorts, a dark-gray zippered, hooded sweatshirt, white gloves, a dark-blue baseball cap, and a light-gray bandana or piece of fabric over his lower face.

Those who tip detectives at 253-591-5959 with information that leads to his arrest and filed charges are eligible to receive a reward of up to $1,000. Callers can remain anonymous.
