Police discovered a hidden bunker in Sammamish they say belonged to a convicted bank robber once featured on “America’s Most Wanted.”

From another source:

“It is understood that Robinett led the FBI to the bunker as part of a plea bargain. His attorneys have agreed with prosecutors that he should serve a sentence of between 12 and 14 years.”

Another source:

“Robinett agreed as part of a plea bargain to take the FBI and ATF around the country to show officials where he had stashed his allegedly stolen goods.”

Another source:

“Court documents reveal that Robinett led FBI agents to the bunker as part of a plea agreement, the Seattle Times reported. The FBI has said that Robinett identified a further two bunkers that have not yet been investigated.”

Feb 11th update:

The original Seattle Times story below- posted on Feb 10th has now been updated to remove all references to a plea agreement- why was the change made?


Original story:

“Felon leads FBI to his Sammamish survival bunker”

“Bradley Robinett, 45, an ex-Marine, survivalist and prolific car thief, led agents from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to the cramped, 8- by 10-foot underground bunker as part of a plea agreement, according to court documents.”

“Robinett was first convicted of bank robbery in 2004 and was sentenced to seven years in federal prison. He was released in August 2009 from a prison in Arizona to serve the remainder of his sentence at a halfway house in Seattle. He never showed up, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.”

“Later that year, police officers spotted him and pursued him at high speeds on Bainbridge Island. He got away; officers later found a Glock handgun and a ballistic vest — both stolen earlier from Seattle police — in the stolen car he was driving.”

Bainbridge Island- only two ways to leave in a car: Drive north or south on Highway 305 until you reach the Agate Pass Bridge or the Washington State ferry to Seattle.

He got away.

Jan 7th 2010:

“BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash. More than 50 local, state and federal law enforcement officers are searching the Grand Forest for evidence against a former Marine in a number of bank robberies and car thefts in Western Washington.”

“The search involves members of the FBI, ATF, U.S. Marshal’s Office, Washington State Patrol, Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office and SWAT and Suquamish Police. They were armed with assault rifles and dressed in camouflage fatigues.”

“Authorities believe Robinett is using the cover of the forest to build a military-style bunker to store stolen weapons and possibly money taken during several local bank robberies.”

Somehow- he evaded the Bainbridge Island manhunt & was not captured until June of 2014 in Hillsboro, Oregon.

If you run a government operation- these are the reporters you want to see on interview day:

In an emergency- deputies will be away from regular duties while cooking?

MREs work well for emergencies- no need to have deputies spend 2 years trying to get a kitchen up & running.
