Mellow Bank Robber Hits White Center Bank
King County Sheriff’s detectives are looking for a “low key” man (surveillance photos above) who robbed a White Center bank last Friday, Sept. 4th.
According to authorities, the man was so mellow, other employees and customers didnâ€™t know the bank was robbed until the teller called 911.
The robber casually meandered into Chase Bank, located at 1616 SW 100th Street about 2:30pm, strolled up to a teller and said he wanted to make â€œa withdrawal.” The teller said he would need a withdrawal slip and directed him to the forms table. According to deputies, the man sidled on over to the table and appeared to fill out the slip.
The suspect got back in line and eventually made his way to the original teller. This time he leaned into the tellerâ€™s window, and said in a deep, soft voice that “this was a robbery.”
The man was given cash and he quietly left the bank. No gun was seen and there was no note.

The robber is a black male about 45 years old, 5â€™ 8â€ tall and approximately 175 lbs. He had a mustache and goatee and wore jeans, a brown fleece-type zippered coat and a brown fabric hat with a short bill.
If anyone recognizes the man they should call the King County Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-3311 (24 hours) or dial 911.
