SALT LAKE COUNTY -- South Salt Lake police have caught up with a man they say robbed a woman as she left a convenience store with an armload of groceries Monday.

James Gillard, 22, was actually arrested by Salt Lake City police after officers say a clerk at another store recognized him from surveillance video that had been released.

Salt Lake City police arrested him on outstanding warrants. South Salt Lake officers are now working on additional charges.

A jailer also contacted police, saying he recognized Gillard, who'd apparently been in and out of jail several times before.

The robbery happened Monday afternoon at a Maverick store at 2650 S. Main St. Police say the suspect pushed the woman back as she walked out of the store, grabbed her wallet and stepped into a waiting car.

Police are still looking for the man's accomplice.
