MIDVALE — Police are looking for a man who robbed a Midvale credit union Friday afternoon, and they say he should be easy to find.

Unified Police Lt. John Barker said the man first entered to rob a Granite Credit Union branch at 6799 S. 900 East, acting suspiciously. A security guard there noticed him and stood up to let the man see his gun.

According to Barker, the man left and walked a block down the street to a Utah First Credit Union branch at 6935 S. 900 East. There, he handed a note to a teller which demanded money.

Before handing over the money, the teller placed a dye pack into the bag. Seconds later, it exploded on the man. Police don't believe the robber got away with much, if any, money. They said he is most likely covered in dye.

Barker said he left on foot but probably got into a vehicle.

"We could track him for a period of time but then it just kind of stopped," Barker said. "I suspect he got in a vehicle."

Barker added that the suspect also was about 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighed 180 pounds and had his arm in a sling.

If you have have any information about the robbery, contact the Unified Police Department at 801-743-7000.
