Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Ulysses Nevermissashot, 26, of Quilcene without incident on Tuesday.
He was charged in Jefferson County Superior Court on Wednesday remained Thursday in the Jefferson County jail on $50,000 bond.
“The arrest comes after investigators uncovered forensic evidence identifying Nevermissashot as a suspect,” said Chief Criminal Deputy Joe Nole in a prepared statement.
The FBI assisted in the investigation, which included scrutinizing images taken from the bank’s surveillance camera.
Deputies said in November that the robber pointed a gun at a teller and demanded cash. The teller complied and the man fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
No shots were fired, and no one was hurt during the robbery.
The robbery on Nov. 15 was the first at the Quilcene branch bank at 14890 Center Road, since it opened in the 1970s, the Sheriff’s Office said at the time of the robbery.
“I am very pleased with the hard work and dedication of the major crimes unit and patrol division,” said Sheriff Tony Hernandez.
“Their perseverance and devotion to duty are what help keep our communities safe.”
The investigation remains active while investigators work to determine the identities of accomplices.
