FARMINGTON — Police are looking for a man suspected of robbing a Zions Bank in Farmington Wednesday night.

At about 6 p.m., a man dressed in all blue clothing and a mask walked into the Zions Bank located at 1663 North Main. He approached a teller window, presented a bag and asked the teller to fill the bag with money. The amount of money given to the suspect is unknown.

The teller describes the suspect as approximately 6 feet tall with a "youngish" voice. He was dressed in blue jeans, a blue hoodie and a mask that covered most of his face. Authorities believe the suspect is a white male in his late teens or early 20s.

"The suspect then fled on foot toward a neighborhood just east of the bank," said Farmington Police Chief Wayne Hansen. "We subsequently received information from several different witnesses that reported him getting into a tan car ... There were no plates on the vehicle."

One witness described the vehicle as a Buick, another witness said the suspect drove a Pontiac, and another witness said it was a Ford Tempo.

At the time of the robbery, there were three tellers and two customers in the bank. The suspect didn't show a weapon or indicate he was armed.

Hansen asks that anyone with information about the robbery call the Farmington Police Department at 801-451-5453.
