Bank Robbery in Wenatchee Shares Similarities With One in Omak

WENATCHEE, Wash. - At 2:15 PM on Friday, July 16th, an unknown white male came into the Washington Trust Bank located at 759 S. Wenatchee Avenue in Wenatchee.  The male gave a teller a note demanding money.  The male received an undisclosed amount of cash from the teller and left the bank.  Initially, it was believed he fled in a blue Honda Civic four door sedan.  It now appears this information is not correct.

The suspect appears, from surveillance video footage and photos, to be the same one that robbed a Bank of America in Omak in a similar fashion on July 13th, 2010.  Nobody was hurt in either incident, no verbal threats were made and no weapons were brandished. 

The suspect appears to be in his 20's, between 6-00 and 6-02 tall, and has an athletic build.  He has very short hair that may be shaved.  The fact that he has worn long sleeve shirts during both robberies may indicate he is hiding distinctive tattoos on his arms.  It also appears he may have tattoos on his right leg. 

These robberies are being jointly investigated by the Wenatchee Police Department, Omak Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation. Anyone with information about this suspect is being asked to call the River Com Dispatch Center at Tel. 509-663-9911.
