Sandra Yi reportingPolice are looking for an armed robber who hit a check-cashing business this morning.

The manager of the Chek Line store on 3460 S. Redwood Rd. says everyone in the store was too shaken up to talk about what happened.

The man, armed with a gun, came in to the check-cashing business just before 10 a.m.

He showed his gun, demanded money and then ordered all the employees on the floor.

Police say surveillance cameras were not working, so they hope someone will have information that will lead to this guy. The man was wearing a black baseball cap, a gray coat and dark-colored pants.

West Valley City Police Capt. Tom McLachlan says the suspect is, "medium height, medium build. The suspect was wearing sunglasses, very large sunglasses we're told, but that's as much as we have right now."

No one was hurt. Witnesses told police, the robber got into a silver, midsize sedan, possibly a Ford Taurus. The car had a dent on the right front fender, just above the wheel. The man was last seen heading west on 3500 South.

Police are working with other law enforcement agencies to see if this case matches any others in the valley. If you have any information, give West Valley police a call.
