High country bandits rob banks ride off on ATV, Hi yo honda! FBI wanted

High country bandits wanted

The FBI is seeking information on "an armed crew" who have been robbing banks in  Northern Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico.  An unknown male identified as suspect number one often enters the banks in rural locations near closing time and brandishes a black semi-automatic handgun. He then demands all the money from the teller drawers.

After loading the dough into a bag he orders everyone onto the floor, and runs from the bank.  These guys don't ride away from the scene on horses, though.  Suspect number one jumps onto his trusty green or maroon ATV while his driver blazes a trail into the horizon.

"Hi Yo Honda"

Suspect number one is described as a white or Hispanic male, 30’s - 40’s, approximately 5’3” - 5’6”, 130 - 160 lbs. (slight build), wearing dark clothing, brown or grey hair with a possible mustache or beard, and thin legs. His voice is described as being deep, rough or raspy.

Suspect number two is described as a white or Hispanic male, 30’s, approximately 6’0” tall, 150 -175lbs., with straight black hair (see sketch below).
