Salt Lake police and the FBI are looking for two men responsible for separate bank robberies Monday. The men used the same method - passing a note to a teller - to demand money at two Key Bank branches.
The second robbery has strong similarities to a string of at least five Salt Lake bank robberies and three Salt Lake County bank robberies, said Salt Lake Police Lt. Phil Kirk.The first Key Bank, 50 S. Main, was robbed about 10 a.m. The suspect was described in his late 20s, about 5 feet 8 inches and 140 pounds, said Sgt. Kyle Jones. The man had a shaved head, was wearing a brown suit and was nicely dressed.
After placing the money in his pocket, the man headed north on Main Street. Jones said the man does not appear to be linked to the other recent bank robberies; his description does not match the suspect description of the previous robberies.
Almost five hours later, the second Key Bank was robbed. About 2:45 p.m., a man wearing a blue-hooded sweat shirt and jeans handed a teller a note demanding money, said Lt. Arthur Healey. The man was also wearing a blue baseball cap with a white front and a logo. The suspect was described as 5 feet 7 inches, with a medium build.
After spotting and removing a dye pack, the man exited through an east door and walked north through an alley.
