MURRAY — Police are looking for a man who allegedly robbed a bank on State Street in Murray Saturday morning.

A man entered Mountain America Credit Union on 5899 S. State in Murray and passed a note to a teller asking for money, police said, but there was no mention of a weapon. The teller gave the man some money and he fled the building, police said.

"He came in, stood in line, waited until it was his turn," said detective Luis Argueta, with the Murray Police Department. "(He) said that he wanted money or there would be trouble or something to that effect."

Police described the suspect as a white male, about 30 years old, 6 feet tall with short blonde hair. The suspect has a small white gauge in an ear and the clerk thought he may have a neck tattoo. He was last seen wearing a green short sleeve plaid shirt.

"He looks like a guy you would see at a Starbucks, typing on his computer maybe," Argueta said.

Police say this man does not match the description of any other bank robbery suspect.

"With these types of crimes, if they're not given what they want or fast enough they do have the propensity for violence, so we want to catch him and stop him before anything like that happens," Argueta said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Murray Police Department at 801-840-4000.
