Boise bank robber last seen walking north on Orchard

A man walked off with a small paper bag with an undisclosed amount of cash following the robbery of an Orchard Street bank Monday morning, according to Boise police.

The robbery was reported at 9:35 a.m. at the Washington Federal branch at 10 S. Orchard Street, just west of North Franklin Road, in Boise. A man walked into the bank and demanded cash.

He did not display a weapon, police said.

The suspect was described as a bald, dark-skinned man who is 5-feet-10-inches tall, about 28 to 30 years old and 150 to 160 pounds. He was wearing a pink button-up shirt (early reports of a light-blue shirt were incorrect, police said) and blue jeans.

He was last seen walking north on Orchard Street, the Boise Police Department reported.

Police said the robbery may be connected to the theft of a dark blue 2002 Jeep Liberty with Ada County license plates. The vehicle was reported stolen from a gas station near Franklin and Cole roads just prior to the robbery. The vehicle was left at the gas station with the engine running.
