Tacoma police are looking for a man who robbed a Key Bank Monday afternoon in the 8400 block of Pacific Avenue.

He handed a teller a robbery note about 3:50 p.m. that was written on a piece of cardboard and demanded cash.

The man walked out with the money, and has not yet been found.

He is described as a white man in his 50s, about 6 foot 2 and 200 pounds, with a black mustache and black hair in a short ponytail.

The hair and mustache might be fake, according to police.

He was wearing blue jeans, sunglasses, a black Marlboro baseball hat and a black t-shirt with a large design of a skeleton riding a motorcycle.

Anyone with information is asked to call Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959. Tips are anonymous, and can result in a reward of up to $1,000, in some cases.
