Suspect #1 Suspect #2
BOULDER COUNTY, Colorado-At approximately 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, January 21, 2015, Boulder County Communications received a 9-1-1 call from the Bank of Estes Park, located in the Niwot Market, 7980 Niwot Road. The caller reported two males had entered the bank, demanded money and left on foot.
One of the suspects is approximately 6’ tall, large build, his race and hair color are not known. He was wearing a black and white striped sweater, over a black hoodie, black pants and a skeleton mask. He was armed with a small rifle type hand gun.
The second suspect was shorter and not as large build as the first, his race and hair are also not known. He wore a pink coat, dark pants, and a balaclava covered his face. He carried an umbrella and a bag.
The males entered the bank and demanded money from the teller. They left the bank on foot and were tracked to a location to the east of the bank where it is believed they had parked their car.

A self-admitted Type-A personality, Jim Eastman is a Niwot resident and Vice Chairman of the Niwot Local Improvement District Advisory Committee. His interests include 50-mile bike rides and 10- and 12-hour work days. Once an executive at Monsanto, he explained how the company was especially adept at incentivizing employees. “Three-quarters of the way toward one bonus, the [bosses] would start holding out the next one,” Eastman said.
“I defined myself by my job. I wasn’t a very nice person,” he admitted of the man he used to be during his career’s heyday. “It cost me my first marriage. It cost me a lot.”
But all that changed when he suffered a head injury in a car accident twenty-four years ago. Because multi-tasking caused seizures in his brain, he was forced to leave Hauser Chemical Research in Boulder, where he worked in business development, and enter the trades. Fortunately he enjoyed the work, eventually starting his own company—Marmot Heating.Read more: Live Donor "Pair Exchange" Best Option for Niwot Resident Jim Eastman
