WESTMINSTER, Colo. (CBS4)– The investigation into a Westminster bank robbery has gone so cold local and federal agents hope solving a missing person case first will give new insight.
On Wednesday, May 27, 25-year-old Daniel Perkins allegedly robbed the Bank Of The West on 120th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard in Thornton.
His girlfriend, 21 year-old Lexy Stacy, last made contact with her family in a text message four days later, but since then has not reached out. She hasn’t used her cell phone, credit cards, or social media.
Her parents filed a missing person’s report with Westminster police and fear the worst.
“She’s got a tattoo across her… she’s proud of… it says family comes first,” says her father, Josh Stacy.
While Perkins, a skinny 5-foot-11 white male is not particularly distinctive, Lexy Stacy does stand out. Along with a tattoo across her chest, Stacy has full sleeve tattoos on her arms. She is 5-foot tall and 120 pounds.
“Last time I heard her, she left with a backpack and nothing else,” said Josh Stacy.
Investigators do not believe Stacy is in danger, but now she is wanted herself.
Westminster police have a felony warrant issued for Stacy on a pawn violation. Police say Stacy was trying to sell a laptop Perkins stole in a separate burglary.
Her mother, Cindy Stacy, says she never trusted Perkins and believes Lexy is being silenced to protect his whereabouts, “He’s either not allowing her to contact us or he’s manipulating her.”
Her parents are now using her Facebook page hoping someone will see her and encourage her to reach out or turn herself in.
The FBI believes Perkins and Stacy may have left the state to avoid detection.
