DENVER (CBS4) – A man wanted by the FBI didn’t disguise himself when he robbed three Denver banks and it may have given him the perfect disguise to getaway.

On May 24 the robber hit the US Bank on South Broadway. He walked in with a note demanding money and after getting cash he ran outside and got on his bicycle and couldn’t be found.

“He wears sunglasses, a hat sometimes; sometimes he has a camelback with water in it, so he’s able to disappear into the crowd,” said Deborah Sherman, public affairs specialist for the FBI field office in Denver.

In just the last week the robber stuck again with the same scheme at two banks in the Highlands neighborhood — robbing the KeyBank off Speer Boulevard and Zuni Street on June 14, and then the US Bank on 38th Avenue and Julian Street June 20.

“All the banks are near bike paths. He’s able to blend in because everyone else is on a bicycle,” said Sherman.

The FBI recovered a mountain bike the robber abandoned after the first incident, but no fingerprints were found.

The suspect is white, in his late 40s to early 50s, 5-foot-8, and about 160 pounds. He has not threatened violence, but investigators say he is considered dangerous.

“Even though he hasn’t said anything dangerous or said he has a weapon or bomb, we are really concerned. Anyone who is willing to go into a bank and hold it up obviously is a dangerous person,” said Sherman.

Federal investigators worry the robber using his well-thought out getaway plan will continue to use Denver’s expanding bike lanes for more crime.
