JV Bandit robs fifth bank

15 Aug

The suspected serial bank robber the FBI calls “The JV Bandit” held up the Chase Bank at 3850 N. Wadsworth Blvd. in Wheat Ridge just before 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The same man is suspected in at least four other bank robberies in the western metro area since October 2008. Most recently, he was named as a suspect in the robbery of the 1st Bank at 4350 N. Wadsworth Blvd. in Wheat Ridge on July 13.

The other three robberies were in 2008: the Chase Bank at 14417 W. Colfax Ave. in Lakewood, the Key Bank at 1222 Arapahoe St. in Golden and the U.S. Bank at 1801 Jackson St. in Golden, the FBI stated.

He was nicknamed because he often wears sports attire, including a letter jacket on at least one occasion.
