FBI continues to seek info on suspect who robbed local bank

A week later, the suspect wanted for last Thursday's robbery at the Sunnyside branch of Bank of America is still at large, and authorities are hoping the public might still have information that will help nab him.

The robbery took place in the bank's drive-through window just after 9 a.m. last Thursday, Nov. 1.

The suspect was driving a green van, which is currently in the possession of Sunnyside police. The Washington State Evidence Team, said FBI Spokesperson Ayn Sandalo Dietrich, is processing the vehicle.

She said members of the public might have information regarding the robbery incident and/or the suspect and urges anyone with information to call the FBI at 206-622-0460 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Those who call Crime Stoppers may remain anonymous and are eligible for a $1,000 reward if the information provided leads to an arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the robbery.

"We are still following any and all leads we have," said Dietrich.
