Wenatchee Police continue their search for the suspect in Friday’s bank robbery. The man they suspect
of robbing the South Wenatchee Avenue Washington Trust Bank is believed to be the same suspect who robbed a Bank
of American branch in Omak earlier in the week. Sgt John Kruse says police don’t have much to go on at this
The suspect appears to be in his 20’s, between 6-00 and 6-02 tall, and has an athletic build. He
has very short hair that may be shaved. The fact that he has worn long sleeve shirts during both robberies may
indicate he is hiding distinctive tattoos on his arms. It also appears he may have tattoos on his right leg.
These robberies are being jointly investigated by the Wenatchee Police Department, Omak Police Department
and Federal Bureau of Investigation. Anyone with information about this suspect is being asked to call the River
Com Dispatch Center at Tel. 509-663-9911.
