LACEY, Wash. -- Police are looking for the man responsible for a heist Thursday in Lacey that was pretty much the opposite of Ocean's 11.

The suspect is described as a white man in his mid-20s who is about 5-feet-8-inches tall and 180 pounds. He had short hair and a thin mustache and was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and baggie jeans.
