WEST VALLEY CITY — Police say the two men dubbed the "Honey Bun Bandits" in a robbery and bomb scare at a Salt Lake City bank may also be connected to a holdup in West Valley City 10 days later.
West Valley police announced Monday the suspects accused of robbing Central Credit Union, 4090 S. 4800 West, on Dec. 27, match the description of two men who robbed a Zions Bank in Salt Lake City on Dec. 17.
In the Salt Lake City robbery, the two men left behind a wrapped Christmas package at the bank, 1420 S. 300 West, claiming it was a bomb. The box was found to contain Honey Bun pastries, earning them the "Honey Bun Bandits" moniker.
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for tips leading to the arrest and conviction of the pair.
The suspects are described as a black man of medium build, between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall, and a white man with a small build, between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall.
The suspects brandished guns in both robberies and should be considered armed and dangerous, police said. Anyone with information about the men can contact West Valley City police at 801-840-4000, Salt Lake City police at 801-799-3000 or the FBI at 801-579-1400.
