You’ll never get into the super villain club if your costume consists of a strip of duct tape across your nose

Police in Edmonds, Poulsbo, Stanwood and Redmond are teaming up to track a man who has robbed four banks in Western Washington in three months.

The robber, who authorities are calling the “duct tape bandit,” has shown a handgun and demanded money at the banks. Police say a customer and an employee were assaulted in Stanwood.

He’s called the duct tape bandit because he wore a piece of black duct tape across his nose and face during all four robberies.

The banks and Crime Stoppers are offering a total reward of $8,000 for information that leads to the capture and conviction of someone.

The man is suspected of robbing a KeyBank in Poulsbo on June 12. He was armed with a semiautomatic handgun in that robbery. At the time, he was described as a white male in his mid 20s, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, with light brown hair and a slim build.
