Utah First Credit Union robbery

MIDVALE — Police continued looking Saturday for a man who investigators believe has robbed at least two banks in two consecutive days.

A man entered Utah First Credit Union, 6935 S. 900 East, about 3:45 p.m. Friday and handed the teller a note demanding money and claiming that he had a weapon, said Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal.

The man was given an undisclosed amount of money. But after he left the bank, a dye pack put in with the money went off, Hoyal said.

The description of the robber matched the description of a man who robbed Cyprus Credit Union, 3109 W. 4700 South, on Thursday.

Detectives were looking for a white man in his 30s who was last seen wearing a black beanie style cap, blue button up shirt and khaki pants. Hoyal said the man also has a mustache that witnesses said appeared to be fake, an eye patch and a bandage under his eye. He also has his arm in a sling, he said.

Anyone with information can call police at 801-743-5915.
