Denver Man, Aaron Dugar Sentenced To Twelve Years In Federal Prison For Armed Carjacking and Bank Robbery
DENVER (STL.News) United States Attorney Jason R. Dunn announced that Aaron Dugar, age 35, of Denver, was sentenced to more than twelve years (147 months) in federal prison for his role in an armed carjacking and bank robbery. The sentence will be followed by three years of supervised release.
According to facts contained in the plea agreement, on December 29, 2018, Dugar stole an SUV at gunpoint, demanding that two victims get out of the SUV and leave their personal property including their cellphones. Dugar then fled in the SUV. About a half-hour later, Dugar robbed the Bank of the West in Wheat Ridge. He entered the bank carrying a dark colored backpack. He approached a teller and put his index finger to his lips, indicating that the teller needed to be quiet. He placed the backpack on the teller counter and then raised a semi-auto style handgun in the air so everyone nearby could see it.
He racked the slide on the gun, demanded money, and pointed the gun at a teller. Dugar ordered the teller not to activate any alarms and instructed her to hurry.
