Marysville Police, FBI investigating bank robbery

MARYSVILLE — Four Marysville schools went into temporary lockdown in the wake of a bank robbery on Thursday, Nov. 7.

Shortly after 10 a.m., an adult male suspect entered the branch of HomeStreet Bank in the 1200 block of State Avenue demanding money, and implied he had a weapon, but none was seen by bank employees.

The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of money. A Lynnwood Police K9 was used in an attempt to track the suspect, but was unsuccessful.

Marysville School District officials reported that Liberty Elementary, Totem and Marysville middle schools, and Marysville Mountain View High School all went into lockdown for 10 minutes following the robbery.

The suspect is described as a white male, standing approximately 6 feet, 3 inches tall, with a slender build, in his late 20s to early 30s, wearing a black windbreaker-type jacket with a hood and dark-colored jeans.

Marysville Police detectives and the FBI are investigating the robbery. Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to call either Marysville Police at 360-363-8350 or the local FBI office at 425-252-3500.
