LONGMONT, Colo. -- Longmont police are currently searching for Thomas Snyder, who is a suspect in an armed robbery that occurred at the Bank of the West on 5th Avenue and Coffman Street Saturday morning.

Police say that Snyder presented a handgun and fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money. Additionally, police say that Snyder stole a 2019 Kia Optima from an Enterprise Sales in Thornton prior to robbing the bank on Saturday.

Snyder also has an active warrant for his arrest for a parole violation for escape, on an original charge of robbery, according to police.

Police say Snyder could be anywhere in the region.

"Logic will tell you he could be anywhere from Ft. Collins all the way through Denver, or even beyond that," says Sgt. James Brown.

"We are actively searching, we are following up on every lead right now, and hopefully we'll have him in custody soon," adds Brown.

Police say to be cautious as Snyder is believed to be armed. Do not confront the individual. If seen, contact the Longmont Police Department at (303) 651-8501.
