At 1:20 p.m., the suspect in a bank burglary this morning was taken into custody without incident.
Detectives were able compile enough information to identify the suspect through a photo montage. A bulletin was released with the suspect's name and picture to all patrol officers immediately.
Within 15 minutes of the release of the bulletin, a Bellevue Police Officer was driving in the 2800 block of Bellevue Way N.E. when he spotted a male subject matching the description. The officer contacted the subject, identified him as the wanted burglary suspect and took him into custody.

This morning at approximately 6:30 a.m. 9-1-1 received a call of a burglary that just occurred in a business park located in the 3000 block of 112th Avenue N.E. A suspect broke a large glass window to enter the administration offices of Banner Bank. A male employee inside the business confronted the suspect. The suspect threatened the employee with scissors and ran from the building.
Bellevue Police quickly set up a perimeter and Redmond Police K9 was called to assist in tracking the suspect.
