FBI Investigating Series Of Bank Robberies In Metro Area
DENVER (CBS4) – The FBI is investigating several bank robberies and says they could all be committed by the same man.
Three Denver area banks were robbed in the last week with two of them that happened Wednesday morning.
The first robbery happened July 10 at a Wells Fargo bank on South Monaco. The other two happened over the course of an hour in Aurora and southeast Denver. He also was spotted inside a third bank on Wednesday.
In one of Wednesday’s robberies the man hit the Chase Bank off South Havana, slipping a note under the glass and running once he got some money. In another he stopped at the First Bank off East Hampden but walked away without any cash. His final stop was the Key Bank just off Leetsdale.
The witness descriptions say the suspect is a black or Hispanic man in his mid-20s. The reported heights range from 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-11 and he’s between 150 and 170 pounds. Some descriptions also say he has a goatee.
He has a star tattoo on the right side of his face and a rather distinctive overbite.
