Man Arrested, Police Say He Robbed Grand Valley Bank Last Month

A man who Grand Junction police say walked into the Vectra Bank on North Avenue on January 14th has been arrested. They believe Warren Dutcher, 42, of Grand Junction, handed the teller a note that said he had a gun. He then made off with an undisclosed amount of cash

Dutcher was taken into custody Sunday afternoon after detectives found him at a home on Ute Avenue. Grand Junction police had a lead shortly after the robbery last month that did not pan out, but more recently, a person who was arrested told police they had heard a man bragging about robbing banks. Further investigation led police to Dutcher and at least three witnesses provided detailed descriptions that matched his appearance.

Dutcher is being held in the Mesa County Jail. In addition to the aggravated robbery charge, dutcher faces a count of theft and one of menacing.
