This suspect in a series of at least five Seattle-area armed robberies may be the same man who held up the Group Health Credit Union branch on 15th Ave at gunpoint Thursday afternoon. The FBI has confirmed that the GHCU suspect is tied to other recent cases in the area and may be working with an accomplice. Now it appears likely that the suspect is the same man pictured in this security camera grab from a robbery at a West Seattle KeyBank on August 5.
Thanks to West Seattle Blog for helping us make the connection. They report that the same man is suspected of hitting banks in North Seattle and a hold-up in Renton. The prolific outlaw is also suspected or nailing a Bank of America in Renton around 11:30 AM Thursday morning before making his way to Capitol Hill for the GHCU job around 3:30 PM.
The suspect in the Capitol Hill credit union heist is described as a heavy-set black male, 5’11″-6′, with some facial hair, brown eyes and wearing a cream-colored baseball cap. He was armed with a revolver with a wooden handle.
