FBI Searching for the Author of These Notes
(LibertySons.org) – A thief in Colorado has hit three banks in the Denver metropolitan area recently. At least one of the robberies happened in August. Now, the FBI is trying to find the man carrying out the crimes.
Local law enforcement and the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force have dubbed the robber the “Empty Promise Bandit.” According to NPR, FBI Public Affairs Specialist Vikki Migoya said the man gives bank tellers demand notes making “assertions that he will never be able to follow up on.” She wouldn’t explain what she meant by the statement, citing an ongoing investigation.
Authorities described the suspect as a white male in his 30s, standing about 5-foot-9-inches tall, with light-colored close-cropped hair and a slender build. He didn’t use any weapons in the robberies, the FBI said. In all of the incidents, he wore sunglasses and T-shirts.

A $2,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest. Metro Denver Crime Stoppers asks anyone with information to call at 720-913-7867.
Authorities are also looking for a suspect across the country in Nashville, Tennessee, accused of robbing two banks, a cellphone store, and other businesses. Police have only said he appears to have tattoos on his arms. He allegedly told victims at the places he robbed he was homeless.

Nashville Crime Stoppers is asking anyone with information to call at 615-742-7463.
Although these two similar crimes are still outstanding, a former FBI agent insists such robberies are on the decline. Instead of walking into a bank, many criminals with similar goals are taking full advantage of the internet to carry out their misdeeds.
