DENVER — The FBI and the Denver Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying a bank robber they say is getting more daring.

Dubbed by investigators as “The Glamour Shot Bandit” because of her disguise, she has robbed at least five banks in Denver since March 22.

Those banks are:

  • Vectra Bank (3600 Quebec) on March 22.
  • Key Bank (6405 E Hampden) on April 1.
  • Key Bank (3410 E. 1st Ave.) on April 5.
  • First Bank (8901 E. Hampden) on April 9.
  • TCF Bank (18520 Green Valley Ranch Blvd.) on April 9.

Before Tuesday’s robberies at First Bank and TCF Bank, investigators said she attempted to rob a Liberty Savings Bank, 6460 East Yale Avenue, but wasn’t successful.

Police say the woman’s level of violence is escalating given the display of a handgun and multiple robberies in one day.

She has worn heavy makeup, large hats, gloves and sunglasses during the robberies. She is described as a 5 and a half foot tall, slender, light-skinned black female in her 20s to early 30s.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP(7867) or text: DMCS plus your message to 274637.
