Police chase, catch suspect in North Seattle bank robbery

 

Update:  A 30-year-old man suspected of robbing a North Seattle bank claimed he was carrying an explosive device. Police say it was later determined to be fake, designed to look like a pipe bomb.

The King County Sheriff’s Office bomb squad is investigating an accident scene near the Edmonds ferry dock after a suspected bank robbery rolled his SUV as he attempted to elude police.

The man, claiming he had an explosive device, robbed a Wells Fargo bank branch at the 13200 block of Aurora Avenue North.

Upon fleeing the bank, the suspect carjacked a man and who drove him to 143rd Street and Meridian Avenue, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office. The suspect then got out of the victim’s truck and jumped into a gold SUV.  Police spotted him and a chase ensued.

The man lost control of his car, rolling it near the Edmonds dock where he was arrested, said King County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Cindi West.
