FBI offers $10,000 reward for arrest of 'Honey Bun Bandits'
SALT LAKE CITY — The FBI has announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of two men accused of robbing a bank and leaving behind a box of pastries, claiming it contained a bomb.
Two men entered Zions Bank at 1420 S. 300 West about 11:30 a.m. Monday, one wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and the other in a dark blue hooded sweatshirt, according to a news release from the FBI Salt Lake City Division.
The men pointed guns at bank customers and employees, ordering them to the ground. No one was hurt in the robbery, officials said.
As the men left, they placed a box packaged in blue Christmas wrapping paper decorated with snowmen in the bank, claiming it contained a bomb. The package was found to contain Mrs. Freshley's Honey Buns, according to the FBI.
The man in the blue sweatshirt was estimated to be between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall, while the man in the white sweatshirt was between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 8 inches. The men should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached, according to the FBI.
Anyone with information about the so-called "Honey Bun Bandits" can call in tips to the FBI at 801-579-1400 or to the Salt Lake City Police Department at 801-799-3000.
