SOUTH SALT LAKE — Police searched but did not find a man suspected of robbing a bank Thursday morning.

Just before 11 a.m., a man wearing a transparent Halloween-type mask, a knit cap and black gloves walked into U.S. Bank on the corner of 2700 South and 300 West, pointed a gun at the teller and demanded money, said South Salt Lake police detective Gary Keller.

There were no customers in the bank at the time. The man left with an undisclosed amount of cash. Police and K-9s searched the area but lost the man's trail, leading them to conclude he may have gotten into a waiting vehicle, Keller said.

Anyone with information can call police at 801-840-4000.
