Tacoma police have identified a man suspected of robbing a Bank of America branch earlier this month.
Now, a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Stefano Andolini, who also goes by Jerald Helsel, on suspicion of first-degree robbery.
Investigators believe the 45-year-old Andolini (pictured here) robbed the bank branch in the 3400 block of South 23rd Street about 3:30 p.m. July 17.
He walked into the bank and handed a teller a robbery note that demanded cash. He grabbed the cash in his hands and ran out of the bank, police reported.
Andolini is described as white and 6 feet tall with a medium build. He is bald and has a thick mustache.
Investigators say he has an extensive criminal background and should be considered armed and dangerous.
Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to Andolini’s capture. Callers may remain anonymous.
