Slim Fast Bandit allegedly has the skinny on bank robbery: Get details of 3 recent heists

Lately, the Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force hasn't been bestowing nicknames upon all of the bank robbers it's seeking -- a pity given how much we enjoyed putting out the alert for the likes of the Bad Hatter Bandit, the Hoppin Hooded Bandit and more. So we're grateful the agency's getting back in the game, dubbing one young suspect the Slim Fast Bandit -- because she's so skinny.

Look below to see photos of her and two other moniker-free suspects and get details about the heists in question for Task Force releases:
