'Brothers bandits' wanted for four bank robberies caught in a stolen car in Thornton

DENVER - The two brothers accused of robbing four metro area banks in ten days were caught inside a stolen vehicle in Thornton.

FBI spokesman Dave Joly announced Friday afternoon that the so-called "brothers bandits" were apprehended by the Thornton Police Department and the FBI's Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force.

"Vyacheslav Volkov and Denis Volkov, were arrested without incident in a stolen vehicle in the City of Thornton," Joly wrote in an email.

Investigators said Vyacheslav, 31, and Denis, 19, walked into the banks with a weapon and demanded money.

They are suspected of robbing the U.S. Bank on Quebec in Denver on August 3, the U.S. Bank on 88th in Westminster in August 5, the U.S. Bank on 120th in Thornton Monday and the TCF Bank on Broadway in Denver Tuesday night.

Joly says the brothers are scheduled to appear in court Monday.
