The FBI is Seeking the Public's Assistance Regarding a Bank Robbery

The Denver Police Department and the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force are investigating a bank robbery.

Academy Bank
740 17th Street
Denver, Colorado
December 12, 2018, 4:45 p.m.

The suspect is described as a white male, 50 to 60 years of age, approximately 5’11” to 6’2” tall, weighing over 200 pounds, with a medium build. The suspect was wearing a white long sleeve shirt, blue jeans, and dark brown boots. He had white hair and a white beard and/or facial hair.

During the robbery, the suspect approached the teller, demanded money, and fled the bank in on foot in an unknown direction. After the robbery, the suspect dropped some of the clothing he wore (near the scene) while robbing the bank.

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.
