Police: Armed bicyclist robs suburban Denver bank
The Denver Post
Bikes are nice.
But on frigid, icy mornings, they may not be the best high-speed getaway vehicle for a bank robber.
At 9:45 a.m. today, 41-year-old Dion K. Morgan allegedly held up the Liberty Savings Bank at 7575 W. Jewell Avenue in Lakewood.
According to bank employees, a gun-wielding Morgan came into the bank, demanded money, took the cash and jumped on a bike to make his getaway.
Five minutes later, Lakewood police agents spotted Morgan on a bike at Florida Avenue and Carr Street and pulled him over.
