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

Bank of the West
12000 North Washington Street
Thornton, Colorado
August, 5 2019, 4:15 p.m.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 30 to 40 years old, 5’8” in height, with a thin build, and stubbly facial hair. He wore a blue baseball hat with white writing, a gray t-shirt, blue jeans, and tennis shoes.

The suspect approached the teller, presented a note demanding money, and then fled the bank on foot in an unknown direction. No weapon was observed or threatened during the robbery.

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 up to 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.
