Steffen said the investigation is ongoing, and they will release more information when it is available.

“It was a coordinated effort between Rifle Police Department, Craig Police Department, the FBI, the Denver Police Department, and Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office,” Steffen said.

Rifle Police are working with Craig Police, which is the lead agency on the investigation.

The robbery in Rifle occurred in the 1200 Block of Railroad avenue just after noon Tuesday.
