The so-called Good Grammar Bandit is still on the loose somewhere, perhaps Colorado.

The man is accused of robbing four Denver banks earlier this month by allegedly handing the tellers good grammar notes. Not surprisingly, the bandit has made national headlines.

The Washington Post mentions the suspect while pointing out badly-written bank robber notes, citing examples in Washington D.C., New York City and Florida.

On Monday, FBI officials in Denver provided photos and the information on the suspect.

The FBI purposely released the catchy name in hopes of media interest. It worked.

“Spelling, punctuation, sentence structure — everything is really done well,” Dave Joly, a spokesman for the FBI’s Denver office, told the Washington Post. Joly said notes with good grammar are unusual.
