Four police departments join forces to find the 'Duct Tape Bandit'

With four banks robbed in less than three months, the Edmonds, Poulsbo, Redmond, and Stanwood Police Departments in Western Washington are collaborating to catch a bank robber dubbed the “Duct Tape Bandit.”

The robber is wanted for thefts at the Whidbey Island Bank in Stanwood on May 24, a KeyBank in Pouslbo on June 7, a Wells Fargo in Edmonds on June 20 and a First Citizens Bank in Redmond on Aug. 8.

In all four robberies, the man showed a gun and demanded money be placed in a white cloth bag. Police say he attacked a customer and employee during the robbery in Stanwood.

The man is described as in his mid 20s with short, light brown hair, about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin to medium build. Police believe he might have a tattoo on the inside of his left leg.
