Tacoma man charged with robbing bank

Staff writerApril 30, 2014 

A man suspected of robbing a Tacoma bank Monday brought a Hawaiian shirt to change into after the holdup, according to court records.

Pierce County prosecutors have charged Don Fisher Jr., 55, with first-degree robbery. He is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday afternoon.

Fisher allegedly told police that credit card debt led him to rob a Key Bank branch in the 1100 block of Pacific Avenue.

He took the bus to the bank and carried a duffle bag with a change of clothes. Fisher approached a teller and demanded on the $50 and $100 bills, charging papers show.

The teller complied and then called 911.

Witnesses pointed officers toward a man they saw hastily changing his clothes in an alley.

When police stopped Fisher, he was carrying a duffle bag containing a white collared shirt and jacket he wore during the robbery, court documents indicate.
