FBI releases bank robbery surveillance video

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Thursday, the FBI released surveillance video from a bank robbery earlier this week during which the suspect bound bank employees together with duct tape and told them they were laying on bombs.

The robbery happened Tuesday just before noon when the suspect, wearing a blonde wig and a fake mustache, walked into the Inland Northwest Bank near Hawthorne and Nevada and took out a gun.

He then herded all the employees to one end of a counter where he tied them up with duct tape.

Afterward, he had them lay on top of golf balls, telling them that they were pressure-sensitive explosives that would detonate if they got up.

In the surveillance video, you can see the man pull what appears to a pistol from his pocket as the teller throws up her hands.

The suspect then escorts the tellers out of camera view. That's when police say the suspect he had them kneel on the floor while he bound them together with duct tape and had them lay on the golf balls.

The video again shows the suspect escort a teller back to the register where she empties out the cash drawer before he walks out of the bank with an unknown amount of money.

If you have any information about this robbery, you are asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
