West Seattle Junction KeyBank robber strikes AGAIN (in Renton)

August 17, 2009 at 6:40 pm | In Crime, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

Got that photo this afternoon from the FBI, taken during a robbery today at the Alaska USA Credit Union on 3rd in Renton. Looked a lot like the robber from the KeyBank holdup in The Junction on August 5th (note he’s even wearing the same T-shirt):

The same robber was linked to at least one of two robberies in North Seattle a week ago Saturday. So we pinged the FBI to ask if this is believed to be the same guy. Agent Frederick Gutt says, “Yes, the suspect today is believed to be associated with each of these robberies.” Here’s the description from today:

The suspect is described as a black male, mid 30′s, approximately 6′ tall, mustache, wearing a tan baseball cap and blue jeans, and departed on foot. The suspect displayed a handgun and should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information regarding the suspect is asked to call the FBI at (206) 622-0460

  1. Wow, he’s not the brightest criminal around, is he? He’ll get caught at some point.

  2. This guy’s best opportunity at this point is to walk into a police station and give himself up with nothing on him. The FBI does not play nicey nice like Barney Fife.

  3. I don’t watch much TV, but is his picture being shown around? I’m surprised it is not showing up more in other media.

  4. He’s not hiding or disguising himself…gotta be someone who knows who he is.
