A Wednesday morning robbery at the East Bremerton branch of Kitsap Bank has Bremerton police on the lookout for a white man in his 20s.

Police described the suspect as approximately six feet tall, weighing about 190 pounds and wearing a red shirt, white ball cap, jeans and white tennis shoes at the time of the robbery.

According to Bremerton Police Sgt. Kevin Crane, the suspected robber is assumed to have fled the bank on foot but may have left the scene in a vehicle.

The robbery occurred at approximately 9:15 a.m. Crane said the suspect entered the bank and approached a female teller with a bag, asking her to fill it with cash. He did not visibly display a weapon. The teller did as was demanded and the suspect quickly left the bank.

An area-wide search in the hours following the robbery led to possible sightings of the suspect at the Bremerton Transportation Center among other locations, but those sightings proved to be false.

Crane said the Bremerton Police Department is currently heading up the investigation but that the department has been in contact with the FBI in regards to the case.

As of press time, no arrests have been made. Anyone with information related to the robbery should contact lead investigator Det. Kenny Davis at (360) 473-5486.
