WESTMINSTER, Colo. (CBS4) – The FBI would like the public’s help finding two bank robbers.
The men were armed with handguns and pulled off the heist at the Wells Fargo Bank on Federal Boulevard in Westminster on Tuesday.
“So they come in, they take over immediately, there’s no covert move to the counter and discreetly passing someone a note. This was an “I’m here, I have a gun, these are my demands,” said FBI spokesman Dave Joly.
Officers found the getaway car, a stolen 1992 black Jeep Cherokee, later Tuesday night.
The two suspects are considered armed and dangerous. They are both men of an unknown race in their 20s. One suspect described as approximately 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9 with a medium build. The second is described as being 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 with a thin build.
“We’re concerned these individuals got away with this money, were brazen in their attempt and they might do this again,” said Joly.
The duo got away with an undisclosed amount of cash, but the FBI said it’s a “substantial loss” for the bank.
“Wells Fargo is offering a reward up to $25,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and prosecution of these bank robbers,” the FBI said in a statement.
“Because of the severity and the violence that was demonstrated by these individuals in the bank on Tuesday, we felt Wells Fargo made a very good move by putting up this money,” said Joly.
