Freeland bank robbed by masked man
The Chase Bank branch in Freeland was robbed by a masked man late Thursday afternoon.
Det. Ed Wallace of the Island County Sheriff's Office said a man wearing a white dust mask walked into the Freeland bank at 5:45 p.m. Jan. 14 and demanded money.
Wallace said the suspect made it sound like he had a weapon, but did not show one. He then fled from the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The robber was described as a 6'0 to 6'2 white male with a medium build, wearing a blue hooded zip-up sweatshirt with a white T-shirt underneath. He was carrying a blue bag and also wearing blue workout pants with a white/gray/white stripe, black shoes and latex gloves.
Anyone with information is asked to call the ICOM dispatch center at 360-679-9567.
