Josh Powell withdrew $7,000 cash from a South Hill bank branch Saturday, according to a search warrant affidavit filed in Pierce County Superior Court today.

A teller at the Bank of America branch at 176th and Meridian contacted sheriff’s detectives Sunday to notify them of the withdrawal, the affidavit states.

The teller did not ask Powell why he was making the withdrawal.

Detectives seized transaction records and photographs of Powell taken by bank security cameras, the affidavit states.

Powell killed his young sons, Charlie and Braden, about 24 hours later.
