If it wasn’t obvious enough last week that times are getting tough for people in Colorado when a Colorado school teacher robbed a bank in Douglas County, this is surely confirmation.

According to the Aspen Times Jeremy Harmon, 38, has been arrested for robing Vectra Bank in El Jebel. He isn’t just under investigation for robbing the bank once but, twice. He is considered a suspect in the march 2nd robbery of the same bank.


On the morning of the robbery Harmon, a husband and father, was at risk of being kicked out of his home if he was unable to pay his court ordered rent at 2 p.m.  This was the same case  for Harmon on March 2nd, when the previous robbery was committed.

It is getting more and more difficult to make ends meet for Colorado citizens, and it sounds like reverting to the days of John Dillinger  is the only option.
