Two men driving down the street saw the crooks running to their car with bags. The men thought it looked suspicious so they followed. They caught up with the bad guys and told them to pull over.

Bret Cook, Witness: "The guy just had the fear of God in his eyes. There was no way he was pullin' over."

The two cars ran into traffic and the robbers got away.

About the same time in Salt Lake City, a man dressed in black robbed a US Bank. Police say he passed a note to a teller demanding money. When he got it, he ran.
