WEST JORDAN — A man who allegedly robbed Mountain America Credit Union Friday turned himself in, officials said.

Brian Powell, 30, went with his attorney to the West Jordan Police Department Sunday and confessed to robbing the credit union, according to Sgt. Dan Roberts with the West Jordan Police Department.

Powell returned most of the money he took, Roberts said.

Powell was booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony, Roberts said.

Powell’s family had recognized him as the robber when they saw his photos put out by the news media and they persuaded him to turn himself in, Roberts said.

Powell robbed the credit union at 6761 S. Redwood Road just before 10 a.m. He entered the building and passed a note to the teller demanding money and said he had a gun. A firearm was not displayed.
