Edmonds Police Detectives are searching for a man suspected of robbing a Key Bank Wednesday afternoon.
A police news release described the suspect as a white man about 60 years old, 5-foot-11, slender with grey hair, wearing a white T-shirt, navy blue shorts, white socks and tennis shoes. Police also provided the photo at right from the bank’s surveillance cameras.
The man allegedly walked into the Westgate-area bank around 4:45 p.m. and handed an employee a note that said he was armed and demanded cash, the news release said.
When the employee handed him money, he walked out, the release said. A police dog was brought to the bank to help track the man, but lost the scent, the release said, an indication he is no longer in the area.
Police are still investigating, and we’ll update this post as more details become available.

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.

Bellevue police are looking for two robbers who held up the Key Bank branch in Factoria with military-style guns this morning, according to Times news partners KING-TV.
Police received reports that two armed men wearing all black clothing and ski masks held up the bank just before 10:30 a.m. One was described as having a military type of rifle, the other had a military handgun, according to KING-TV.
Police said the robbers demanded money and the contents of the bank safe, then escaped through the back side of the building. They climbed over a fence and fled on foot. Police later released a surveillance photo of one of the robbers (above).
Police are investigating reports that the two robbers had police scanners that enabled them to time their getaway to evade police, according to KING-TV.
“Obviously they did some planning. So it’s not someone that’s distraught and just comes in and needs money for a house payment,” Dan Mathieu of the Bellevue Police Department tells KING-TV. “These are true criminals.”
