PUEBLO – The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in locating two bank robbery suspects they believe may now be in the Denver area.

The suspects, identified as 36-year-old Patrick James Bryom and 40-year-old Kortny Nicole Payne, are wanted in connection to a robbery at Pueblo West bank on November 16th.

The robbery occurred at the U.S. Bank, located inside the Safeway at 1017 N. Market Plaza in Pueblo. The Sheriff’s Office said the couple entered the bank just after 6 p.m. on November 16th. The man, presumably Bryom, handed the teller a note stating he had a gun and demanded money. The woman, presumably Payne, stood behind the man throughout the interaction. They left on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. No weapon was seen and no one was injured.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, Bryom is described as a tall with blonde or brown hair. He had a full beard and wore a black hoodie and black ball cap. Payne is described as being about 5’8″ tall with short brown hair and glasses. She was wearing a green ball cap and black jacket.

Authorities said they believe the couple may frequent or be staying at or near Safeway and Walmart parking lots. They are believed to be traveling in a late model white minivan with dark tinted windows and possibly out-of-state plates. Authorities also believe they may now be in the Denver area.

If anyone has information on the whereabouts of these suspects, they are asked to call the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office at (719) 583-6250.
