Reward offered for ID of bug-eyed bandit robbing banks in Kirkland and Everett
Kirkland Police are asking for the public's help to identify this bank robber who held up the Bridle Trails Wells Fargo on October 1st.
"He covers half his face but you can see his eyes. He's got very round, dark brown eyes that are very distinctive and we're hoping by somebody seeing that they may be able to recognize him," said Corporal Cody Mann.
He was wearing a hat, face covering, black Ecko Unlimited hoody, black gloves, shorts and leggings. He was armed with a handgun and carrying a small black bag. The suspect immediately contacted a bank teller and demanded cash. The suspect immediately ran out of the bank, turned south, and fled the area in a vehicle staged nearby.

The suspect was wearing a similar disguise but his neck was visible during this incident, showing the upper details of a neck tattoo.
