The Graph Paper Bandit Bank Robberies

The FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force, Englewood Police Department, and Denver Police Department need your help identifying a bank robber. The banks where the robberies occurred are listed below. Each of these robberies appear to have been committed by the same individual.

Wells Fargo Bank
1601 Blake Street
Denver, Colorado
October 15, 2018, 3:20 p.m.

First Bank
1777 16th Street
Denver, Colorado
October 19, 2018, 10:00 a.m.

Wells Fargo
3333 South Bannock Street
Englewood, Colorado
November 23, 2018, 2:41 p.m.

The suspect is described as an Asian male, in his early 20s, between 5’9’’ and 5’11”, with a slim build.

In each robbery, the suspect entered the bank, presented the teller with a note written on graph paper; threatened, but did not brandish a weapon, then fled the bank on foot.

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).
