Spree of 17 bank robberies meets tragic end

kdvr: LONGMONT, Colo. – A man believed to be responsible for 17 bank robberies in Colorado, Kansas and New Mexico is in custody after an SUV matching the suspect vehicle description was pulled over in Longmont Thursday afternoon.

The FBI says an alert bank teller at First Tier Bank in Boulder saw a male matching the description of the so-called ‘Shaggy Bandit’ enter the bank, and then leave without incident. That employee called 911.

Police pulled over the suspect, identified as 29-year-old Michael Kincade, and the driver of a maroon Ford Bronco, 45-year-old Christopher Richardson, in the parking lot of a Red Lobster in Longmont.

Both were taken into custody without incident.

He’s suspected in more than a dozen robberies in Colorado, mostly in the Denver area. The FBI also believes he robbed a Wells Fargo in Albuquerque, N.M., on June 30 and a Peoples Bank and Trust in Hutchinson, Kan., on July 14.

Investigators say no gun or other weapon has been used.
