ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. — The FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force and multiple police departments investigated two bank robberies on Saturday morning.

The man in the photo was spotted at a Chase Bank in Westminster at 10:22 a.m. then accused of robbing this location.

Then about an hour later he allegedly robbed another First Bank location in Centennial.

The same suspect was believed to be responsible for both bank robberies at the following locations, according to FBI representative Amy Sanders.

  • Chase Bank 

13620 Orchard Parkway in Westminster on Saturday at 10:22 a.m.

  • First Bank

8600 East Arapahoe Road in Arapahoe County on Saturday at 11:20 a.m.

The suspect was later arrested by Castle Rock Police Department and is being held on unrelated state charges, Sanders reported.

Bank robbery is punishable by a 20-years for each offense and increases if a weapon was used during the crime.
