SAMMAMISH, Wash. (AP) — The FBI says authorities have found an underground bunker east of Seattle that's believed to have been used by a bank robber who spent nearly five years on the run before he was arrested last summer.

FBI spokeswoman Ayn Dietrich-Williams says investigators have hauled large tubs of evidence from the bunker found Tuesday near Lake Sammamish.

Reporters got a tour of the bunker Tuesday. It has a cot, plastic bags and shelves with bottles.

Bradley Robinett fled in 2009 instead of reporting to a Seattle halfway house after serving time for bank robbery. He was arrested in June in Hillsboro, Ore. He pleaded guilty to escape and related counts in January. Sentencing is set for May 4.
