A guaranteed $1,000 reward is yours if you can tell Seattle Police the name of a bank robber we’re calling the ‘Nervous Nellie Bandit.’ Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound explains why, “The thing that makes us nervous in this case, is according to witnesses he was very nervous, he was sweating profusely. When you get to this point it tells me as an investigator he’s probably got a drug habit and he’s laid low for a while, but sooner or later he’s going to run out of the drugs that he bought and he’s back doing banks.”

Surveillance video shows him hitting the Verity Credit Union on Stone Way back in May — waiting his turn for a teller, then wasting no time handing her a demand note when he got to the counter. He had a black bag ready to go for her to put the stacks of cash in, then took off.

Detectives think he's white, in his mid-30's to early 40's, around 6’1” and 230 pounds
