Police say 40-year-old Marka Deoro Slade first went to a dry cleaner on 820 W. 700 North. She pulled out a gun and demanded cash.

They refused to give her any money, so she got back on her bike and pedaled to a smoke shop down the block. There the employees handed over a small amount of cash and then called police when she left.

Officers caught up with her a few blocks away.

Detective Jared Wihongi with the Salt Lake Police Department says she is charged with five robberies, including the Blue Boutique on North Temple.
