According to the FBI, Thursday morning (2/12/09) around 10:45am, the Burien Key Bank located at 655 SW 152nd was robbed by this man, described as a white male, in his late 20s, medium height, slim build, brown hair, with a goatee::

According to police, he entered the bank, gave a teller a demand note, got money, then took off.

No weapons were displayed and there were no injuries.

If this bad guy looks familiar, you are asked to contact the Seattle FBI immediately at (206) 622-0460.

UPDATE 2/13/09: Michele Smith, who runs the Vino Bello Wine Bar nearby, sent us this comment:

Didn’t this just happen?

Last Spring as I pulled up to open my shop, the block of 152nd and Ambaum was filled with King County Sherriff’s and Burien Police cars, the Key Bank was being robbed and officers were running up and down the sidewalks in riot gear with automatic weapons like on one of those cop shows you watch on TV.

And then it happened again yesterday, it’s pretty unnerving.

Isn’t this the 4th bank robbery in Burien is less than a year?

You’d think Burien might put more patrols out – just a thought.

    There has been an increase in bank robberies all over the state recently, it isn't just happening in Burien. See this Seattle Times article from 2/11

    Nah. Can't be Joey 'cause he still gets work, and this guy is too skinny. Probably just some 'trash kid trying to make his Subaru payment this month because he got laid-off at McD's.

    The bigger question is: why won't Key Bank put up bullet-proof glass like Wells Fargo? Hard to rob a bank when the tellers aren't worried.
