BROOMFIELD, Colo. — Two Broomfield schools were put on "secure" notice after a bank robbery occurred Friday morning. Broomfield Police said "secure" is the same as lockout, meaning no one can enter the schools from the outside.

The schools placed on secure notice were Legacy High School and Westlake Middle School. The secure notice was lifted just after 10:30 a.m. and the schools returned to normal activity, police said.

Police said the FirstBank branch located in the shopping center at West 136th Avenue and Zuni Street was robbed just before 10 a.m.. Officers set up a perimeter around the area while they searched for the robbery suspect.

The FBI said the suspect is in his 30s, 5 feet, 5 inches to 5 feet, 9 inches tall with a stocky build. The suspect has long dark brown hair and dark eyes. He was last seen wearing a purple button-down shirt, a dark gray jacket, dark grey pants, a black neck gaiter and black beanie hat. Police said the suspect got away in a gray Acura sedan.

Police ask that if anyone has information on the suspect, or spots the getaway car, to call 911.

Broomfield Police said a second bank was robbed not long after the first. The Key Bank branch near West 120th Avenue and Lamar Street was hit, which caused a brief lockout of the Broomfield Library and the Broomfield Heath and Human Services buildings.

The suspect in that case is described as being in his 20s-30s. 5 feet, 7 inches to 5 feet, 9 inches tall with a thin build and skinny face. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a dark gray jacket, black dress shoes, a yellow and black plaid button-down shirt, a maroon hat, neck gaiter and gloves.
