CASE UPDATE November 9, 2018 —
Police believe the man and woman who robbed a Wells Fargo in Spokane Valley with a gun on Halloween day are the same suspects who hit a bank in Seattle nine days before.
The photo below from the bank in Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood shows the man with a beard — not clean-shaven like the Spokane Valley heist — and the woman wearing the same jacket and hat.
“They enter the bank. They don’t dalley around. They immediately walk up to a male teller. You watch the video, he produces a note and basically it says, ‘I have a gun.’ He actually lifted his, could see what appeared to be a silver pistol, maybe a .38 and he said do what I tell you, so obviously, the teller doing the right thing, gave him the cash, he just took it and you watch them as they exit,” said Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound.
Seattle Police detectives say the white Chrysler Town & Country minivan they drove for both heists came from a dealership in Oregon. They've tracked down that lead, but it hasn't led to a break in the case.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information that leads to an arrest. Use the P3 Tips App on your smart phone to submit the tip, or call the hot line at 1-800-TIPS(8477).
