Two in custody following Thornton bank robbery
Northglenn Thornton Sentinel
Two adults, a man and a woman, are in custody after a bank robbery at 120th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard in Thornton around 1 p.m. Tuesday.
According to the Thornton Police Twitter account, the incident started with reports of an armed robbery at the Wells Fargo Bank at 12040 Colorado Blvd.
That led to an 8-mile pursuit that ended in a crash at 88th Avenue and Colorado Highway 2 in Henderson. Police said there was shooting while they worked to arrest the two suspects.
The Twitter account says a male and female reportedly displayed guns while walking into the bank.
An officer saw a vehicle speeding away from the bank and initiated a pursuit. That vehicle was later determined to be stolen.
