The Larimer County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are investigating a bank robbery that occurred Thursday, August 15th at approximately 11:39 a.m. at Points West Community Bank located at 8100 South 6th Street in Wellington, Colorado. 

The suspect was described as an approximately 40-year-old white male, about 6',1" tall with light brown hair, scruffy facial hair, no moustache, wearing a grey baseball cap and sunglasses and carrying a red backpack.
The suspect entered the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money. No weapons were seen. The suspect then left the bank with an unknown amount of cash and exited the area on foot. No one was injured.
At this point, it is too early to tell whether this robbery is associated with the previous Fort Collins and Denver area robberies.
