North Mason Man, 81, Faces Bank Robbery Charges

I got a call earlier this week from a gentleman in Allyn, who was surprised we hadn’t seen that his neighbor was nabbed for bank robbery.

And it wasn’t your typical heist: his neighbor, 81 years young, was arrested for robbing a KeyBank in University Place April 22. It was his second such robbery — he’d held up one other four decades ago, the News Tribune of Tacoma reported.

“He seemed like an upstanding guy,” the Allyn man said of his neighbor.

The robber didn’t get too far, though. A Pierce County Sheriff’s deputy pulled over his getaway car a short distance from the bank. He was booked into the Pierce County jail.
