Robber hits same Burien bank twice in 8 days
The King County Sheriff’s Office is hoping you’ll recognize this guy.
A creature of habit, he’s suspected of robbing the same Burien Key Bank branch last month, most recently yesterday.
The first robbery happened on Sept. 23 when he walked into the bank in the 17800 block of First Avenue South just before 1 p.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money.
On Monday, the same man was back at the bank around 3:45p.m.; he simulated a weapon and demanded money, the sheriff’s office says.
In each of the robberies the man left with an undisclosed amount of money.
The sheriff’s office says he is white, in his 30s, about 6 feet tall, with a slender build.
Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward of up to $1,000 for any information leading to the arrest and criminal charges.
If you recognize him, call 1-800-222-TIPS.
