‘Man Hands’ Robber Tries Hand at Another Stick Up


It appears the “Man Hands” Bank Robber knows how to take a ferry.

The FBI is connecting a hold up at a bank in Edmonds Monday to one that occurred at the Kitsap Credit Union in Poulsbo last week, according to a number of news organizations. They believe both robberies were committed by a man dressed as a woman they’re calling “The Man Hands Bandit,” in honor of a Seinfeld episode. Seriously.

Shortly before 10 a.m., a man walking in to the First Security Bank on Edmonds Way. Yes, he was wearing a black wig. And he passed a note to the tellers demanding cash. And yes, he was wearing a sporty black tracksuit.

Perhaps the FBI should enlist the help of the Washington State Ferries, whose Edmonds-Kingston run would provide Mr. Man Hands his most convinient access to both banks.

Anyone with information about him is asked to call 911.
