The man accused of robbing a Grand Junction Rite Aid and Vectra Bank was formally charged Friday morning.
Twenty seven-year-old Mitchell Lee Reeves was charged with eight counts in connection to the two robberies, one at gunpoint. He faces one count of aggravated robbery, two counts of crime of violence, one count of aggravated robbery of a controlled substance, one count of robbery, one count of menacing, and one count of theft.
According to the affidavit, his ex-wife was able to identify Reeves from pictures taken from the Rite Aid surveillance video after police received a tip from a Vectra Bank teller who told them Reeves was a family friend and they put the two together.
The Rite Aid pharmacy on 12th Street was robbed at gunpoint Friday, May 8 and the Vectra Bank at 24 and F Roads was robbed Friday, May 29.
