Police seek bank robber; some money recovered

Police are seeking help in finding a man who robbed at Key Bank in Poulsbo Thursday morning.

Some of the money that was stolen was recovered nearby.

At 9:46 a.m. Poulsbo police and surrounding law enforcement agencies responded to an armed robbery at the bank at 19735 10th Ave. NE. A lone male inferred he had a weapon, demanded cash from the teller, then left, reportedly getting assistance with transportation from the crime scene.

While enroute, officers were updated with a location in a residential neighborhood about a mile from the bank. Officers canvassed the area. Some money was recovered but the suspect had left in a car.

The vehicle was older and black, similar to a Honda Fit. Police in Kitsap County are on the lookout. Witnesses saw a possible suspect running through the area prior to the arrival of police.
