Armored van robbed at Loveland bank

The Reporter-Herald
A man robbed a armored van driver at gunpoint outside a Loveland bank Tuesday afternoon, making off with an undisclosed amount of money.

The robbery, outside Advantage Bank, 1475 N. Denver Ave., took place at about 2:25 p.m.

The suspect confronted a Northern Armored Service employee with a handgun outside the bank by the service employee’s truck.

The suspect, described as a white male about 5 feet 8 inches tall, wore a stocking cap, sunglasses, jeans and a sweatshirt.

He took money from the vehicle then fled the scene in a silver sedan, possibly a Ford Contour.

The robber did not go into the bank, police said.

Responding officers and investigators searched the area for cars matching the description after the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Brad Templeman at 962-2244.

This is the second aggravated bank robbery in Loveland this year. The Home State Bank, 300 E. 29th St., was robbed at gunpoint Feb. 4 by a man who made off with an undisclosed amount of money.

Last year, the U.S. Bank at 29th Street and Buchanan Avenue was robbed twice.

On Aug 28, 2007, a man who claimed to have a gun walked up to the drive-through window at the bank and gave tellers a note demanding money. No one saw him brandish a weapon, police said, and the suspect, described as a Hispanic male wearing a hooded sweat shirt with white writing on it, got away on foot.

On March 27, 2007, the same bank was robbed by a man who did not threaten anyone or carry a weapon. That suspect, who made off with an undisclosed amount of money, was described as a 30- to 35-year-old Hispanic or white male, about 5-foot-9 in height with a medium build.
