Seattle Police got some help in identifying the suspect in last Saturday’s morning hold-up at the Broadway Market Wells Fargo.
The man was taken into custody Thursday after being recognized by his Department of Corrections officer:

On Saturday, October 22nd, a white male walked into a bank in the 400 block of Broadway Ave East. The suspect fled the bank with cash. An alert DOC officer saw the photo of the bank robbery suspect and recognized him as someone who is already a client of the Department of Corrections, in light of his previous conviction for robbery. When the suspect went to his visit his DOC officer on the 27th, he was taken into custody and turned over to Seattle police.
