On Thursday, March 22nd shortly after 5 p.m., Bellevue Police responded to a reported bank robbery at the Chase Bank located at 10550 NE 8th Street. This was the second robbery at that bank in as many months. When police arrived, they learned that the female suspect had passed a note to the teller and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Evidence left by the suspect at the scene led investigators to identify the suspect, a 24 year-old Seattle resident. Early in the morning on April 12th, investigators with the Bellevue Special Operations Group (SOG), assisted by the Bellevue Police and Seattle SWAT teams, served a search warrant at the suspect’s residence in the Hillman City neighborhood of Seattle.

The suspect was interviewed by Detectives and later booked into the King County Jail for first degree robbery.
