If the heist is not successful, don’t be a blundering robber and return to the scene of the crime.

That may be the lesson for one man arrested after the robbery of the Key Bank at 110th and 19th SE near Silver Lake today.

Everett Police say a lone male wearing a dark cover over his face entered the Key Bank shortly before three o’clock this afternoon. After demanding and receiving some money he ran east from the bank. Witnesses reported seeing him throwing something into the bushes and getting into an El Camano heading east on 110th.

Everett Police officers checked the bushes and located an exploded dye pack and some cash. They recovered that evidence and continued to process, then clear the robbery scene.

About an hour and 45 minutes after the robbery happened, someone called 9-1-1 to report the suspect had driven back up in the El Camano and was searching through the bushes where police had earlier recovered the evidence.

Patrol units were nearby and took the suspect into custody. The 34-year-old Marysville man was interviewed at the north Everett Police precinct and has been booked into the Snohomish County Jail on suspicion of first degree robbery. No word if this blundering bank robber is connected to other robberies in Everett or beyond. He’s expected to make his first court appearance Friday afternoon.
