A 51-year-old man from Kenmore was arrested Saturday after he robbed a bank earlier in the day.

Shortly after 12:30 p.m. the man walked into the Key Bank in the 7800 block of Northeast Bothell Way in Kenmore and presented a note to a teller indicating he had a weapon and demanding money. According to a King County Sheriff’s Office press release, the frightened teller complied and gave the man a bag containing an unknown amount of money.

Shortly after 1 p.m., deputies from Kenmore and Shoreline police departments — both of whom contract for police services with KCSO — were able to locate the suspect with the bag and money in the 4000 block of Northeast 197th Street in Lake Forest Park, the release states. The suspect was arrested without incident and positively identified by bank employees.

Detectives from the KCSO will be working with the FBI on the follow-up for this investigation to determine if the man is responsible for any other bank robberies.

The man was booked in the King County Jail for investigation of robbery.
