November 16th First Bank Robbery

The FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force and Denver Police Department need your help identifying a bank robber. The bank where the robbery occurred is:

First Bank
1617 East Colfax Avenue
Denver, Colorado
November 16, 2018, 3:45 p.m.

The suspect is described as a male, approximately 5’10” to 6’0” in height, 160 to 180 pounds, with a medium build. The suspect was seen wearing jeans, a brown or olive-colored jacket, an aviator hat with ear flaps, and sunglasses.

The suspect entered the bank, demanded money, and then fled the bank on foot on East Colfax Avenue.

Please be on the lookout for anyone matching the suspect’s description. Be aware of anyone similar who might have recently changed their spending habits or discussed coming into money suddenly.

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.
