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:

Guarantee Bank
1331 17th Street
Denver, Colorado

The suspect is described as a white male, 30 to 40 years old, approximately 5’4” in height, with a medium build, and red facial hair. The suspect wore a black hoodie, black baseball hat, sunglasses, khaki shorts, and sandals. He was carrying a black backpack with red panels on the sides.

He verbally threatened a weapon, received money, and fled on foot in an unknown direction.

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.
