FBI Seeks Assistance Identifying Serial Bank Robber

Suspect Nicknamed Bag Lady Bandit

The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, Littleton Police Department, and the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force (RMSSTF) are investigating multiple bank robberies suspected of being committed by the same individual.

This individual has been dubbed the “Bag Lady Bandit” by the RMSSTF.

The Bag Lady Bandit robberies are below:

The suspect is described as a white female, 25 to 35 years of age, approximately 5’5” to 5’7” in height, 200 to 250 pounds, with a pear-shaped build.

The suspect enters the bank, presents a demand note, and flees.

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.
