Kirkland, WA – On December 15, Kirkland Police Department (KPD) arrested a Finn Hill man believed to be linked to multiple bank robberies in the region, including a robbery at Wells Fargo bank in Juanita on November 10, 2023.

The arrest was the culmination of a monthlong, joint investigation by the KPD, the King County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) and the FBI in Seattle. This collaboration was instrumental in gathering crucial information linked to various bank robberies around the region. Witness information led investigators to the suspect, who had a prior bank robbery conviction.

The man was arrested at his home in the Finn Hill neighborhood of Kirkland and booked into King County Jail on three counts of robbery.

KPD would like to thank the KCSO Major Crimes Unit and the Seattle Field Office of the FBI for their collaboration, which resulted in the successful conclusion of this case.
