Authorities want help finding bank robber

An man flashed a gun and did his best to hide his face while robbing a bank. Now the Pierce County Sheriff Department wants the public’s help figuring out who he is and where to find him.
In what detectives as takeover-style robbery, the bandit walked into a Bank of America branch in the 17500 block of Meridian Avenue East at 6 p.m. on Aug. 15. As surveillance video rolled, he displayed a small black handgun, demanded cash from the tellers, and ordered all of the customers to put their hands up and look away. He put the money in a white bag and ran away, heading in the direction of a nearby Fred Meyer store.
He wore a green hoodie and black sunglasses and had a bandana covering most of his face. Authorities said witnesses described him as a white male in his 20s with a slender build.
The Sheriff Department is asking anyone with possible information about the robber to report it to Tacoma-Pierce County Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or at Crimestoppers offers rewards for information leading to the capture of wanted criminals.
