Snoqualmie-North Bend Police arrest teen bank robbers following pursuit

SPD News Release

At approximately 3 p.m. on January 26, 2024, Snoqualmie-North Bend Police officers responded to a Robbery In Progress at the Sno Falls Credit Union, located at 320 Mt. Si Blvd in North Bend, WA.

Responding officers were given a description of the suspect and told he had passed a note to the teller. A sergeant arrived at the scene within minutes and saw the suspect running from the credit union to a waiting vehicle, a black Kia sedan. When the sergeant attempted a traffic stop, the getaway vehicle fled onto westbound Interstate 90 (I-90). A pursuit was initiated, and the driver of the suspect vehicle continued his flight from law enforcement.

The pursuit entered Bellevue and the driver of the suspect vehicle exited I-90 at exit 11. After exiting the freeway, the suspect vehicle struck three victim vehicles. The suspect vehicle failed to stop and re-entered I-90 Westbound. Near exit 8, on Mercer Island, the suspect vehicle was disabled after a Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) was used. Two 15-year-old male suspects were taken into custody.

During the investigation, officers learned the suspect entered the credit union and passed a note to the teller stating he was armed with a gun and would kill everyone in the credit union and himself before police arrived. The suspect left with $10. The getaway vehicle had been stolen from a Maple Valley family earlier in the day.

Both suspects were booked into the King County Children and Family Justice Center in Seattle. One of the two suspects has a previous conviction for Robbery 2nd Degree.
