WEST JORDAN — Police apprehended three people Wednesday they believe held up a University of Utah Credit Union that morning, and authorities also connected them to a Jan. 9 bank robbery.
Police arrested Pablo Montano, 28, of West Jordan; Steven Trent Morrison, 31, of South Jordan; and Kasey Sorter, 26, of West Valley City.
About 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, two men wearing hooded sweatshirts and dark bandanas covering their faces entered the credit union at 7121 S. Redwood Road, demanding money and brandishing a handgun.
Police in the area spotted two men matching the suspects' descriptions and detained one of them. The man was in possession of the money taken in the robbery, police said. The second man fled in a gold Jeep.
A tip led officers to a home at 1369 W. 7200 South, where they discovered clothing lying the yard, matching reports from the morning robbery. Police questioned the home's occupants and arrested the second man, as well as a woman believed to be the driver of the Jeep.
Investigators believe the trio is responsible for the robbery of Mountain America Credit Union at 6761 S. Redwood Road on Jan. 9 and are looking into whether they could be connected to any additional robberies. The bank was robbed by two men who brandished a handgun and demanded cash.
