The FBI and local law enforcement agencies are seeking information about a serial bank robber they believe has robbed 13 banks since Aug. 1, 2012.

The man has been dubbed “The Clearinghouse Bandit” by the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force.

While most of the robberies occurred in Denver and Aurora, he is believed to have robbed Security Service Federal Credit Union in Colorado Springs on Oct. 31, 2012, at 4:20 p.m., the FBI said.

He is called “The Clearinghouse Bandit” because he carries a magazine during his robberies. Publishers Clearinghouse offers discounted magazine subscriptions.

The suspect enters the bank, presents a demand note, and flees, the FBI said.

Anyone who has information is asked to call the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force at 303-629-7171; or earn up to $2,000 by calling CRIMESTOPPERS at 720-913-7867.
