An Everett man appeared in court Saturday and had bail set at $1 million in connection with a Kirkland bank robbery Friday afternoon, KOMO News is reporting.
The 40-year-old is accused of walking into Key Bank at 14150 Juanita Dr. NE, just after 5 p.m., and passing a note to one of the bank tellers demanding money.
According to court documents, the suspect admitted to police he wore a blonde wig and black jogging suit as a disguise during the robbery.
Police say the suspect entered the bank wearing the wig and passed the teller a note demanding money. No weapon was used and the suspect left the bank with cash. A citizen passing by the bank noticed the suspect running to a vehicle, get in and drive away. The citizen called 911 and a Kirkland police officer stopped the vehicle that was occupied by two males and a female.
Court documents say the man was not immediately seen by the officer and was found hiding in the back seat area of the extended cab, the KOMO News report said.
Patch generally does not name suspects until they have been formally charged.
