KUSA - The FBI is seeking a pair of bank robbers dubbed by the agency as the "trash talking bandits."

The two bandits robbed a Westminster Wells Fargo at gunpoint last week.

The nickname comes from the aggressive way the duo treated customers and employees, and because they used trash bags to carry out the cash.

While the FBI isn't saying exactly how much they got, they do say it's the biggest amount in our state's recent history.

Friday, Wells Fargo bumped up the reward to $35,000 for information leading to an arrest.

While the pair are assumed to be men, one could be a woman.

Both are described as over 5 foot 7. One with a medium build, the other with a thin build. 

They wore jackets, clothes and hats and their faces were hidden behind fabric.
