Three armed and masked men robbed an armored truck Wednesday afternoon in Greenwood Village startling a guard, ordering the victim to the ground with a weapon to her head as the truck was ransacked. The three robbers quickly fled in an SUV.
The frightening, lightning-quick robbery happened at about 2:30 p.m. in a parking lot at the Bank of Colorado, 5201 S. Yosemite St., according to the FBI.
The robbers wore black or blue hoodies, masks and sunglasses. Two were armed with semi-automatic handguns, and one brandished an AK-47 variant, the FBI said.
The robbers fled in a 2013 to 2016 gray Nissan Pathfinder, which had a stolen Colorado license plate CVD-251. Surveillance footage of the crime shows a robber appearing to strip a gun from the guard before taking off.
Conviction of armored vehicle robbery carries up to a 20-year prison sentence, which increases if a weapon is used, the FBI said.
The FBI and Greenwood Village Police Department are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects. Anyone with tips is asked to call the FBI 303-629-7171; or call Crimestoppers at 720-913-7867 (STOP).
