Englewood police joined Denver officers and the FBI’s Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force in the search for 59-year-old Robert Gilbert Estes, who is suspected of holding up the U.S. Bank in the King Soopers store on Englewood Parkway as well as another U.S. Bank branch in downtown Denver.

The bulletin from the FBI identified Estes as being suspected of robbing the Englewood bank at 10:45 a.m. Oct. 22, and the bank at 1100 S. Broadway at 9:45 a.m. Oct. 15. In each case, he reportedly went to the teller, implied he had a gun, took the money and ran.

Estes also reportedly escaped federal custody and is wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service.

He is described as a white man, 6 feet, 4 inches tall, who weighs about 170 pounds. He wears glasses and is bald. He has been identified as armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about these cases or about the location of Estes is asked to call the FBI task force at 303-629-7171. Information also earns the provider up to $2,000 and he or she remains anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
