MILLCREEK — Unified police are offering a reward in connection with the search for a man who robbed a Wells Fargo Bank and may be connected to several other Salt Lake Valley robberies.
On Tuesday, Dec. 23, a man entered the Wells Fargo Bank inside a Fresh Market grocery store at 3865 S. 2300 East and approached a teller. He brandished a handgun and demanded money, according to the Unified Police Department.
While the teller was getting an undisclosed amount of money, the man pointed the gun at the teller. The teller gave the robber the money before he fled on foot, police said.
Unified police responded, searching the area. Officers were unable to locate the robber and have released surveillance images in hopes of identifying him. Police believe he has committed other bank robberies in the Salt Lake Valley.
