A potentially armed and dangerous suspect is wanted by police in Grays Harbor County for two recent robberies.

Officers believe Jay Randall Gladden, 29, is the man behind Monday's robbery at the Twin Star Credit Union in Hoquiam as well as a hold-up at theHuckleberry Espresso in Aberdeen on Saturday.

Police searched Gladden's apartment in Hoquiam, located less than a block from the bank, but did not find him.

According to officers, the suspect handed a note demanding money to a Twin Star teller. He took a bag out from under his clothes and filled it with an unknown about of cash before running from the building.

Police found some of the stolen cash along the route the suspect fled, as well as his clothes in a nearby carport.

Gladden is about 5-feet 11-inches and 145 pounds. Officers believe he may have since changed his appearance and is now clean shaven.

Anyone with information that may lead to an arrest is asked to call 360-533-3180 in Aberdeen or 360-532-0892 ex. 102 in Hoquiam.
