Bank Robber’s Escape Aided With Craigslist Ruse, Not Inner Tube

Monroe Police are doubtful that a man who robbed an armored vehicle yesterday actually escaped via inner tube down the Skykomish. However, police believe the robber did post a Craigslist ad to help make an easier getaway. The ad asked for construction workers in need of work to show up in a specific outfit at a location across the street from the bank. Nearly a dozen men showed up in blue shirts and respirator masks, which is like what Monroe police say the robber was wearing. So no inner tube escape, but the latest details still make the suspect sound pretty ingenious.
