Bank robbery suspect remains at large
VAIL ” With the suspect in the WestStar Bank robbery still on the lose, the Vail Police are seeking more witnesses to help their investigation.
Investigators would like to speak with anyone who was in the area of the Hanson Ranch Road bank between 2:30 and 2:45 p.m., Tuesday.
The bank was robbed by a man who gave a bank employee a note demanding money, which was placed in the man’s bag, police said.
The man is in his late 40s or early 50s, about 6 feet tall, and 220 pounds. The day of the robbery he was wearing dark pants, a navy-blue nylon jacket with light-blue stripes across the chest and inside arm. He was also wearing thin cotton gloves, a dark-colored beanie and sunglasses, police said.
People with information can contact Vail Detective Robyn Fetterolf at 479-2134.
The robbery is the second at the bank in nine months. Anthony Prince and Luke Carroll, seasonal ski shop workers from Australia, were convicted of robbing the bank of nearly $130,000 in March. Both are serving time in prison.
