Three Bank Robberies in One Day

Police say one robber had success before a couple weeks ago so he tried robbing the same bank, a Bank of Utah at 700 S. State. A teller recognized the man when he walked in and was able to press the alarm.

It’s a busy street so an officer was in the area and the man was arrested without a confrontation. Police say he was unarmed; now he’s in custody.

The first robbery of the day was at 9:30 this morning at South Salt Lake US Bank. The second at about 1:00 p.m. at a Bank One in West Valley. In that one, the robber was caught as well.
