Detectives seek bank robbery suspect who wore wig during holdup in Federal Way

Bank employees gave the suspect an undetermined amount of money before the suspect fled in a vehicle.

Police are searching for a suspect who robbed a Wells Fargo bank in Federal Way on Saturday while disguised with a wig and black clothing.

At approximately 2:30 p.m., Federal Way police responded to reports of a bank robbery in the 900 block of S. 348th St. at Wells Fargo.

The suspect, described as a white male in his 20s and wearing a wig, black hoodie and black pants, entered the bank and demanded money, according to Federal Way police Cmdr. Kurt Schwan. Witnesses said they did not see a weapon, nor did he imply he had one. Bank employees gave the suspect an undetermined amount of money before the suspect fled in a vehicle.

Officers located the unoccupied suspect vehicle nearby, which was a reported stolen vehicle out of Federal Way.

Police attempted a K-9 track, however, they could not locate the suspect due to numerous other subjects being in the area at the time, Schwan said. Police impounded the vehicle for evidence.

There were no reported injuries.
