"Tour de banks" robber busted in Bothellon October 12, 2012 @ 1:01 pm (Updated: 3:25 pm - 10/12/12 )
He was dubbed the "tour de banks" robber because he would take off on a bicycle after each bank robbery. Several local police agencies and the F.B.I. worked together to track the suspect down to a home in Bothell.
"This was an excellent resolution to a very dangerous threat and shows what can be accomplished with strong partnerships between local law enforcement agencies and the FBI," said Bothell Police Chief Carol Cummings.
The 30-year-old man was arrested as he left his home around 8:00 a.m. This time, he wasn't on a bike, but was driving away in a car.
Following the arrest, search warrants were served on the man's home in the 20300 blk of 124 Ave NE and at an adult family home the man owns in the 21100 block of 46 Ave SE in Snohomish County.
