DENVER — Authorities are looking for two men who robbed a suburban Denver Wells Fargo bank while holding guns to the heads of customers and employees.

At a rare news conference on Friday, Denver FBI Special Agent in Charge Thomas Ravenelle and Westminster Police Department Chief Lee Birk said the two men were very aggressive and verbally abusive when they robbed the bank on Jan. 21.

They said the amount of money taken in the bank robbery is the largest in recent Colorado history, but they did not disclose the amount taken.

Wells Fargo Bank is offering a reward up to $35,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and prosecution of the robbers.
