VIDEO: Federal Agents Discover Secret Underground Bunker in Seattle Mountains Belonging to a Notorious Bank Robber – A Former Marine and Expert Survivalist Who Evaded the FBI for Five Years

Tracking down a criminal on the run can be difficult on its own, but when that criminal is an ex-Marine survivalist, then it’s obvious that federal agents will have their work cut out for them. Such was the case with Bradley Robinett, who evaded detection for five years, and whose underground bunkers agents are just now discovering.

The FBI has found an underground bunker east of Seattle believed to have been used by a bank robber who spent nearly five years on the run before he was arrested last summer.

Bradley Robinett, 46, is one of America’s most notorious criminals, and featured in an episode of the TV program America’s Most Wanted in 2011.

In addition to robbery and car theft, he was convicted of the unlawful possession of a machine gun, and served seven years in prison before escaping in 2009.

A former Marine, expert survivalist and woodsman, he is known for hiding in makeshift shelters and bunkers in the forest and burying large stashes of weapons.

While on the run, he avoided capture by ramming a police patrol car and escaping in a stolen kayak.

FBI spokeswoman Ayn Dietrich-Williams confirmed that investigators hauled ‘between 15 and 20′ large, sealed bins, which officers are meticulously investigating in the search for further clues.

The cramped bunker, which is accessed by a concealed hatch and is eight feet wide and ten feet long, was equipped with a rudimentary bed, plastic bags, and a storage area filled with soda.

It also contained a pair of sneakers, and there were unconfirmed reports that jewelry and weapons were found.

Local reporters expressed shock at the discovery, as the hideout is located just five minutes’ hike from the busy Monterre residential complex, on the shores of Lake Sammamish.

The bunker is scheduled for demolition once the forensic team has concluded its investigations.

It would be fascinating to find out how many of these bunkers Robinett has around Seattle. And it’s amazing that the bunker remained there undetected all this time, despite the busy traffic in the area.
