aaaaquickchange

The man dubbed the “Quick-Change Bandit” during a bank robbery Aug. 18 at a Bank of America branch in Kent.

Police are hoping you recognize this fast-working bank robber after he hit two banks within the same hour on Aug. 18.

He’s been dubbed the “Quick-Change Bandit” because he changed clothes between the two bank robberies in Kent and Auburn, according to the FBI. Detectives also believe he may have also robbed a Lakewood bank on Aug. 16.

He is described as a black man in his late 20s or early 30s, around 6 feet tall, with a stocky build.

Anyone with information on “Quick Change” is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).  Callers may remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $1,000.
