The morning of Jan. 9, a suspect robbed the Chase Bank at 7605 W. 88th Ave. in Westminster. The following morning, the same person is suspected of robbing three more banks, including the First Bank at 8901 E. Hampden Ave. in Denver and US Bank at 8441 W. Bowles Ave. and First Bank at 6701 S. Wadsworth Blvd. in unincorporated Jefferson County.
An FBI crime alert described the suspect as a white male in his 20s between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-10 tall. He has a slender build, dark hair, brown eyes, “stubble” facial hair and black eyeglasses with a thick frame, according to the alert.
The suspect approached the teller, made a verbal demand for money, threatened the teller and then fled the bank, the alert said.
The suspect did not display a weapon, according to a Facebook post from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
Images of the suspect show him wearing different baseball caps and jackets or hoodies during robberies.
The FBI's Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force and Metro Denver Crime Stoppers are working with local police agencies on the case. The FBI is involved because the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which insures deposits, is considered a victim, said FBI Denver spokesperson Vikki Migoya.
Anyone with information on the suspect is encouraged to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-7867, 24-hour anonymous tip line. Callers could earn up to $2,000 for information that helps solve the crimes.
