People's bank robbed for the second time


The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is looking for a suspect who robbed the People's Bank on Woodmoor Drive and is asking for the public's assistance for help identifying the suspect.

The bank was robbed at approximately 12:30 p.m. on July 22, almost two months after another robbery occurred there. The suspect is described as a white male, between 6 feet and 6 feet, 5 inches tall with a slim build. He was wearing blue jeans, a dark long sleeved shirt, a dark baseball cap and glasses. During the May 24 robbery the suspect had a similar description.

“Nothing is definitive but there's enough similarities to raise eyebrows,” Lt. Jeff Kramer, public information officer for the sheriff's office, said.

During the July 22 robbery the suspect approached the counter and demanded money from the teller. He fled the area on foot and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. Kramer said no weapons were used and nobody was injured.

If anyone has information about either robbery they are asked to call 719-390-5555. They are also seeking information from anyone who may have seen any vehicles stopped along the northbound shoulder of Interstate 25 during the time of the robbery.
