PUEBLO – Investigators in Pueblo are considering a possible link between a bank robbery suspect and an earlier armed robbery in Pueblo.

Despite being shot, the victim in a November 3rd attack was able to describe their attacker and a white older model GMC pickup seen leaving the parking lot of the 29th Street Shopping Center.

The suspect was seen wearing a distinctive white mask with a black hoodie.

When combined with information from the November 27th robbery of the Academy Bank inside the Walmart on Dillon Drive, investigators have a clearer picture of a suspect in both crimes.

A suspect wearing the same mask and driving what appears to be the same truck is sought for the bank robbery.

He’s only described as a male, 5’7″ to 5’9″ tall with a thin build.

If you have any information, please call Detective Ryan Torres at 719-320-6037. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Pueblo Crime Stoppers @542-STOP (542-7867) or www.pueblocrimestoppers.com. If your Crime Stoppers information leads to a felony arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
