Second arrest in Hopping Hooded Bandits grand jury

11 Feb

A man who was allegedly one of a group of bank robbers dubbed the “Hoppin Hooded Bandits” was arrested late Wednesday by the FBI and the Denver Metro SWAT team at a Denver home, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said today.

The man, identified as Timothy McGlothin, 41, is the second member of the gang who authorities say they’ve arrested.

Joshua Licona, described as an accomplice of McGlothin, was arrested earlier.

Both men were indicted by the federal grand jury in Denver on Jan. 6 alleging that the pair used a handgun to rob the Bank of Denver, 800 E. 17th Ave. They are also accused of using a handgun during a crime of violence – specifically the armed robbery of a bank.

If convicted of count one, the pair face a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. If convicted of count 2 – using a firearm during a crime of violence – they face a sentence of between 7 years and life in prison.
