A suspected bank robber associated with a May robbery of Washington Federal Bank in Lynnwood was arrested after robbing a bank in Maple Valley.
The call in Maple Valley came in around 12:45 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 4 as a Key Bank was being robbed by the woman. After the woman left, a witness called 911 to report the suspected robber had jumped into the trunk of a blue Camaro that sped off.
Responding King County deputies saw the vehicle as it was entering Highway 18. They eventually caught up to the vehicle at the Tiger Mountain Summit parking lot. Both the woman and the driver, a man, were taken into custody without incident.
According to the King County Sheriff’s Office, the 27 year old female suspect from Enumclaw was booked into the King County Jail. The 30 year old driver from Sumner was also booked into the King County Jail.
In addition to this incident and the incident on May 11 in Lynnwood, the woman has been linked to bank robberies in the City of Marysville on May 9 and one in the Fairwood area of unincorporated King County.
