JV Bandit makes another bid for varsity status -- by allegedly robbing another Wheat Ridge bank

Last month, we noted that the JV Bandit would make the varsity soon, given the rate at which he was allegedly knocking over banks. And the suspect, named by the Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force, which has bestowed monikers on the likes of the Formerly Known as the Perennial Bandit Bandit and many others, is said to have struck again.

Look below for details and photos from this crime, as well as its predecessor.
