The FBI believes a man they call the "Good Grammar Bandit" is back to robbing banks in the Denver north metro area.

Investigators call him the "Good Grammar Bandit" because the robber's notes demanding money are typed with proper spelling, grammar and punctuation, according to a news release from the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force.

The robber is described as a black man in his 30s who is 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall and has a slender build. The bandit's method is straightforward: He enters the bank, gives the teller the typed note and flees on foot.

Authorities believe he's committed these robberies:

  • 5:11 p.m. on July 29, Chase Bank, 13781 Colorado Blvd., Thornton, Colorado
  • 11:35 a.m. on July 8, Chase Bank, 13781 Colorado Blvd., Thornton, Colorado
