Brighton police are investigating a robbery at the First National Bank of Omaha in the 1600 block of East Bridge Street, according to a department tweet.
A press release said the department received a call from a bank employee about the robbery shortly before 11 a.m. on Nov. 2.
"Officers learned that the male suspect demanded cash while indicating that he had a weapon in his pocket," the press release said. "The bank employee gave him the cash that also contained a dye pack. The suspect took the money and ran westbound on Bridge Street."
The suspect is a Hispanic man, 5 feet 3 inches tall, with a face piercing on his left cheek, a face tattoo covered with makeup and a goatee. The tweet said the suspect is wearing a black hat that says "719," jeans, and a dark shirt.
If you see him, call 911.
Several schools in the area – including Brighton High School, Vikan Middle School, South and Southeast elementary schools, the Innovations and Options campus and Bright Beginnings – were on a precautionary secure lockdown. Authorities gave the all-clear around 12:30 p.m. 27J Schools spokeswoman Janelle Asmus said, "...all students and staff are safe, and all schools have resumed normal schedules."
The press release said the police department and the Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force are taking part in the investigation. Those with information should call the police department at 303-655-8740 or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7876.
