DENVER (CBS4) – New surveillance photos have been released of two bandits that have pulled guns at 13 different businesses in a span of 20 days.
Two men known as the “Milli Vanilli Bandits” continue to rob small Denver area restaurants armed with weapons.
At times the pair have worn long black wigs.
Detectives named them for their resemblance to the disgraced 1980s disgraced pop duo Milli Vanilli.
“We’re highly concerned because they’re armed, they come in, they’re aggressive and their actions leave us greatly concerned,” said Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson.
In early November they targeted a Jersey Mike’s on North Broadway and forced employees to open the register.
On the same night, less than an hour later, they robbed a Jimmy John’s on East Alameda Avenue.
A few days later a Silver Mine Subs shop on Colorado Boulevard was hit at approximately 11:30 p.m.
Two days later they targeted a Papa John’s near the University of Denver and Big Daddy’s Pizza on West Colfax Avenue.
On Nov. 29 the bandits stole money from a Pat’s Philly Steak Shop.
In every case they have threatened employees with a gun. Investigators fear it’s only a matter of time before they pull the trigger.
There is a $2,000 reward from Crimestoppers for information leading to an arrest.
