A suspect, who had just robbed a bank in Marysville Tuesday morning surrendered to a responding Marysville police officer while still at the bank.
Just after 10:30 a.m. this morning a male subject entered the Bank of America located in the 400 block of State Ave., in Marysville. The suspect placed a note on the counter at a teller window demanding money. While collecting money the teller was able to alert another teller who alerted a manager who notified police. No weapon was implied or seen by bank employees.
An officer who had arrived on-scene across the parking lot from the bank noticed a male subject standing outside the bank entrance, however, the clothing the man was wearing did not exactly match the description that had been broadcast. The officer made eye contact with the subject who put his hands up as if surrendering. The subject then waved the officer over. As the officer began walking towards the subject he directed the subject to walk towards him. As they came within talking distance the subject stated to the officer that he was the guy who had just robbed the bank, and advised the officer the money was in his pocket.
The officer immediately took the 42 year old suspect into custody and located the money in the coat pocket of the suspect. Officers learned the man has most recently been living in a Marysville motel.
Witnesses at the bank were able to identify the man as the bank robber. He was booked in the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first-degree robbery.
