FBI: ‘Good Grammar Bandit’ wanted in 7 metro Denver bank robberies

DENVER — The FBI along with Denver metro police departments are investigating seven recent bank robberies that they believe were committed by the same man.

Investigators call him the “Good Grammar Bandit” because the demand notes he gives to bank tellers are typed with proper spelling, grammar and punctuation.

Here is his description:

  • Black male
  • In his 30’s
  • Approximately 5’7” to 5’9” tall
  • Slender build

The FBI says he enters the bank, presents his demand note, and then flees on foot after getting his loot.

Investigators say he hit four banks in April and three banks in July, the most recent on Tuesday. A Chase bank in Thornton has been targeted three times. The Good Grammar Bandit is wanted for the following bank robberies:
