The FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force and Thornton Police Department Need Your Help Identifying a Bank Robber

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

  • Wells Fargo Bank
    12101 Colorado Boulevard
    Thornton, Colorado
    July 3, 2019, 2:30 p.m.

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 25 to 35 years old, 6’0” in height, with a thin build. The suspect wore a dark colored t-shirt, light colored shorts, black shoes, and a black and white baseball hat.

The suspect entered the bank, approached the teller, demanded money, and then fled the bank when teller did not comply quickly enough. He fled the bank in a light-colored sedan parked nearby. The car was occupied by a second male in a green shirt.

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.

If anyone has any information on the bank robbery above, or any bank robbery, please call the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force at 303-629-7171; or, you can remain anonymous and earn up to two thousand dollars ($2,000) by calling CRIMESTOPPERS at 720-913-STOP (7867).
