MOUNT VERNON — A 36-year-old Vancouver man was found guilty in Skagit County Superior Court on Aug. 10 of first-degree robbery.

Joshua Castillo robbed the Skagit Bank branch at 1301 Memorial Highway in Mount Vernon of $800 on Nov. 22.

According to court documents, Castillo entered the bank at 12:50 p.m. and handed a teller a note demanding $800. The teller complied and Castillo left.

No weapon was used and no one was injured.

Flooding Nov. 24 at a campsite in Edgewater Park led to Castillo’s arrest.

His sentencing hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
