(KSL News) A hungry bandit robbed a 7-11 this morning.
The suspect, Thomas Fatty, was milling around the 7-11 at 11 East 1700 South. Employees say they saw Fatty shoplifting the burritos and confronted him. Fatty threatened the employees, saying he had a weapon.
Police say Fatty then threw enough money on the counter for one burrito and took off.
Police caught up to him in an alley behind the 7-11, and asked him to put his hands in the air.
Lt. Dave Cracroft, Salt Lake City Police Dept.: "It's strange that he would decide he needed to have the last bite of his burrito before he complied, when he had two officers pointing pistols at him."
Fatty was booked into the Salt Lake County jail on suspicion of aggravated robbery.
