The Puyallup Police Department is conducting an ongoing investigation into the unsolved bank robbery that occurred at 5:10 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21 at Heritage Bank on South Hill in the 4600 block of South Meridian.
"It remains an active investigation for us but this is one case where the department really needs help from the public," said Captain Scott Engle of the Puyallup Police Department.
The suspect entered the bank wearing a black knit mask and black knit coat with darker cargo-style pants. Engle said the man also wore a distinctive glove on his left hand.
From the small cut outs in the mask, it was determined that the suspect is a white male and heavy set, possibly more than 200 pounds. His height is six foot to 6'3".
Within five minutes of entering the bank the man fled the scene on a bicycle on southbound Meridian with an undisclosed amount of money after demanding to tellers for $10,000 and threatening to ignite a bomb.
"This was a fairly aggressive bank robbery," Engle said. "He came into the bank with a mask and making demands the minute he entered the building."
No customers were in the bank at the time. There were no injuries reported.
Because this is a federal crime, Engle said the Federal Bureau of Investigation is now involved in the case.
Engle said any information that can be provided to police will be helpful.
The Puyallup Police tip line is 253-770-3343.
