The Denver Police Department and the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force (RMSSTF) are investigating three bank robberies suspected of being committed by the same individual.

The suspect is described as a black male, 50 to 60 years of age, approximately 5’8 to 6’0 in height, with a medium build.

This individual has been dubbed The O2 Bandit by the RMSSTF. The bank robber typically wears a medical type mask and appears to have a mobile oxygen (O2) tank with him; it is unknown if the tank is real.

    

The suspect enters the banks, presents a demand note, and flees.

Bank robbery is punishable by a 20-year prison sentence for each offense and increases if a dangerous weapon is used in the commission of the crime.

The FBI continues to provide financial institutions with the best practices for security to make them less vulnerable to robberies.
