DENVER - Police are looking for a man who they say robbed three banks and was involved in a suspicious incident in the fourth. Three of those incidents happened on Wednesday.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 20s who is approximately 5'7" to 5'9" with a thin build and a goatee. Police say he has what appears to be a star tattoo near his right eye.
The first incident happened on July 9. Police say the suspect entered the Wells Fargo Bank on 1001 S. Monaco St. at 11:07 a.m. He presented a demand note, received money and then fled, according to a news release.
The second incident happened at 9:08 a.m. Wednesday. The suspect entered the Chase Bank at 1627 S. Havana St., presented a demand note, received money and then fled, according to a news release.
At 9:25 a.m. Wednesday, police say a man resembling the suspect was involved in a suspicious bank incident at the First Bank at 8901 E. Hampden Ave - located 3.8 miles away from the Wells Fargo Bank on Monaco. The man entered the bank, "acted very suspicious," and then walked away, according to a news release.
A man resembling the suspect then entered the Key Bank at 5250 Leetsdale Drive at 10:08 a.m. Wednesday. As in previous robberies, he presented a demand note, received money and fled, according to a news release.
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, according to the FBI-Denver Division.
