WEST VALLEY CITY — Police are looking for a man they believe is behind a string of recent bank robberies in Salt Lake County.

The suspected robber is described as a white man in his mid-20s, about 5 feet 10 inches, with a thin to average build, according to West Valley City police.

Police said the man passed a note demanding money to a teller at University Credit Union, 2752 S. Redwood Road, about 5:35 p.m. Tuesday. The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash before the man fled on foot.

The man did not display a weapon or make any mention of one. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing blue jeans, a long-sleeved, gray button-up shirt, a gray baseball cap and dark sunglasses. Police said he appears tan in surveillance photos.

West Valley City police, Unified police and the FBI are working to identify the serial bank robber.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call the West Valley City Police Department at 801-840-4000, Unified Police Department at 801-743-5950 or the FBI at 801-579-1400.
