OREM Two Maverick employees in Springville helped police identify a suspect in an early morning robbery Sunday.
Provo police arrested a man Monday for investigation of the robbery and at least one other robbery in Orem early Sunday, according to a 4th District Court affidavit of probable cause.
The two Springville Maverick employees, a married couple, said a man entered the Maverick on 1509 N. 1750 West just after 5 a.m. Sunday wearing a wool cap on his head and a bandana over his face. They said the man, who said he had a gun, took $163 from the cash register, climbed over a fence and disappeared, according to the affidavit.
The male employee told police that a short time later, he saw a light-colored, four-door car with a black stripe traveling south toward 1500 North. The employee's description of the car was consistent with surveillance video, according to the affidavit.
The employees said the man was wearing a black T-shirt with the name of a rock band, blue jeans and white gym shoes, according to the affidavit.
Earlier, a Maverick in Orem was also robbed by a suspect with a similar description. That robber was wearing a different T-shirt and showed a knife.
Early Monday morning, Provo police arrested a man on suspicion of driving under the influence. The man and his clothing matched the description of the robbery suspect, as did the man's car, according to the affidavit.
The man was held in Utah County Jail on $25,000 bail.
