The King County Sheriff’s Office says a man who robbed a Covington bank today is the same man who hit an Auburn bank on March 3.
Today’s robbery occurred just before 11 a.m. at the Chase Bank branch in the Fred Meyer store, 16700 block of Southeast 272nd Street. He passed a teller a note and fled with — you guessed it — an undisclosed amount of money.
The previous robbery was also in a Fred Meyer Chase Bank, this one in Auburn. He wore a Seahawks cap during that heist.
The man is described as black, in his 30s, and about and 6-foot-3. Today, he wore a Miami Heat cap, gray button-up jacket and jeans (see photo below).
Anyone with information on the man is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 206-296-3311, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
