Bank Robberies

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

The same bank robber has hit twice, once on July 7 in Snohomish County, and then again July 11 in Shoreline. His photo was distributed last week, but detectives have now released photos of the getaway vehicle used in the July 11 robbery.

It is a distinctive Nissan Pathfinder, blue in color with a solid black hood. The tires look to be larger than stock, and there is no spare tire rack on the tailgate. The getaway vehicle was driven by an unidentified female.

The white male suspect has a pockmarked face and was wearing a baseball hat with the logo from the band Alabama on it.

Anyone with information on the identity of the male or the whereabouts of the Pathfinder is urged to call the King County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center 24/7 at 206 296.3311.

Step into the Middle Ages at Camlann Medieval Village

  • Written by Shannon Michael

On a showery summer afternoon, the Camlann Medieval Village, located east of the Stillwater General Store south of Duvall, transported me to what a rural English village must have been like in 1376.

Roger Shell, one of the founders, began the business as a summer festival in 1981. The medieval village concept ran as a summer event until 1993 when they were able to open it up as a permanent village year round. In 2006, the Camlann Medieval Association turned it into a living history museum when it bought the property.
