Police are looking for a man who robbed a Wells Fargo Bank in the 5200 block of Pacific Avenue in Tacoma Wednesday afternoon.
Pierce County Sheriff's Spokesman Ed Troyer says the suspect entered the bank around 3:10 wearing a dish towel around his head and handed a note demanding cash. The man then left on foot and fled in to the south.
Now, most bank robbers try to disguise themselves. It's just that in most cases, they use something that actually covers their face. This one had a small dish towel wrapped around his head that basically concealed his forehead -- and nothing else.
The suspect is described as a white man, around 40 years old, 5 feet 10 inches, and weighing 180 pounds. Police say he's dirty, scruffy, and was wearing dark blue jeans, a blue t-shirt, a light blue jean jacket and brown cowboy boots. And, as luck would have it, you can see his full face from camera surveillance video (D'oh!)
Oh yeah, and don't forget about the dish towel.
Police are offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and charging of this suspect. Call 253-591-5959 if you have any information.
