UPDATE | Alleged bank robber makes off with cash from KeyBank

Police were still searching for the suspect on Wednesday.

Police are searching for a suspect in connection to a bank robbery in Bremerton on Tuesday.

Officers responded to a report of a robbery at KeyBank on Wheaton Way around 3:42 p.m., according to a Wednesday press release. An “undisclosed amount of cash” was taken, Bremerton Police Department Sergeant Keith Sargent said.

Surveillance footage showed a suspect wearing a white hoodie, white pants and a mask, while carrying a black bag outside the bank. Witnesses confirmed the suspect wore a mask and rubber gloves during the robbery, according to the release.

Officers remained on the scene until approximately 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. A K9 unit was present to help locate the suspect, who fled on foot.

Sergeant Tim Garrity said “nobody was harmed” and “no force was used” during the alleged crime. Images from bank surveillance cameras showed what looked like blood on the pavement outside the store, which Sargent said “does not appear to be” related to the robbery.

Police were still searching for the suspect Wednesday. Detectives were reviewing video footage and interviewing witnesses, Garrity said. The FBI is assisting with the investigation.

On Wednesday morning, a private security guard had been relocated to the bank. A representative from KeyBank declined to comment on the incident and referred questions to law enforcement officials.

Garrity could not immediately recall the last time a bank was robbed in Bremerton.

“It’s a pretty rare occurence,” he said.
