DENVER (CBS4) – A Colorado bank robber has pleaded guilty to being “The Glamour Shot Bandit.” Brianna Casias, 19, will be sentenced on a charge of aggravated robbery.

Investigators say she dressed in flamboyant attire and held up several Denver banks last year, including three in one day.

At different times she wore a blonde wig, a black and white-striped scarf with a sun hat, large sunglasses, a white head covering, waxed or manicured eyebrows and a choker to cover a neck tattoo.

Casias also wore white latex gloves during each robbery and never spoke to bank tellers. She passed a note that demanded money often requesting it in the form of $20, $50 and $100 bills.

Investigators also say she used two stolen cars during the first six robberies and had an accomplice.

Two people named her in tips to Metro Denver Crime Stoppers. A bank teller from the first robbery identified Casias from a photo lineup.

She’ll be sentenced on May 18.
