WANTED BY THE FBI SEATTLE SAFE STREETS TASK FORCE — 

A robber on the run is accused of hitting the same bank three times this year.

“The FBI Safe Streets Seattle Task Force is searching for a robber we call the ‘Summertime Heat Robber.’ He’s hit the same bank in Issaquah three times over the last six months. The first time was in February and the most recent time was July 11th,” said FBI spokesperson Ayn Sandalo-Dietrich.

“We are calling him the ‘Summmertime Heat Robber’ because he is always wearing sunglasses or a hood or a hat. So given that we’ve had this heat wave recently it seems like his protecting himself from the sun,” said Sandalo-Dietrich. “We come up with that nickname not to make light of what is serious criminal activity, but we want it to help stick in the mind of the public who we are looking for. That way, with luck, they are going to come forward with a tip to help make us an arrest and identify this person.”

Like all bank robbers featured on Crime Stoppers, a $1,000 cash reward is yours if you can tell the FBI what the ‘Summertime Heat Robber’s’ real name is.
