John David MartinezDENVER – Police and FBI agents cracked a Denver bank robbery case in five hours — but they had lots of help from the suspect.

According to court records, 68-year-old John David Martinez was wearing a black T-shirt with his first name on it when he entered the Wells Fargo bank at 1777 W. 38th Ave. just after 9 a.m. Tuesday.

The man’s next mistake was driving a silver Honda sedan that was registered in his name. Investigators soon identified Martinez as the suspect through the license plate, according to a police probable cause statement supporting the man’s arrest.

After being greeted by a female teller, the suspect, an older man with white hair and a salt-and-pepper beard, said, “This is a robbery, give me the money,” the statement read.  More  More Strange Crime Stories
