Police: North Spokane robbery suspect cool and collected



















SPOKANE, Wash. - Police say the suspect who robbed a Northeast Spokane Banner Bank Monday evening was cool and collected throughout the ordeal.

The robbery happened just before 5:30 p.m. at a Banner Bank located inside the Safeway near Hamilton and Mission.

Spokane Police Officer Brian Eckersley says the suspect, a white man in his 40s, was calm as he approached a bank employee and handed that employee a note demanding money and stating that he was armed.

Eckersley said the suspect's calm demeanor was a positive in that no one reacted rashly to the suspect and do something like try and tackle him or attempt to intervene in the robbery.

The man never pulled a gun during the robbery.

Police set up a perimeter following the robbery but were unable to apprehend the suspect Monday night.

The suspect was able to get away with an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect is said to be 5 feet 5 inches tall and was wearing a dark Carhartt jacket at the time of the robbery. He also had on a pair of wire-rim glasses.

If you have any information, you are asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
