  • Special Agent Amy E. Sanders (303) 630-6060

The Denver Police Department, the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, and the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force are investigating 13 armed robberies in the Denver metro area.

The FBI is investigating these robberies as a potential violation of the Hobbs Act-Title 18, United States Code, 1951, which is a federal statute that prohibits the obstruction of interstate commerce by robbery or extortion.

These individuals have been dubbed Milli Vanilli Bandits by law enforcement because of their choice of wigs worn during the robberies.

The suspects are described as:

  1. White or Hispanic male, 5’08” to 5’10”, 160 pounds, gray hooded sweatshirt, gray mask, or black leather jacket
  2. Black male, 6’0” tall, gray hooded sweatshirt, wearing a long black wig

These suspects are considered armed and dangerous—do not approach and notify law enforcement immediately.
