MIDVALE — One man has been arrested, and police are looking for another man in an attempted jewelry store robbery.
Miguel Lopez Hernandez, 25, was arrested for investigation of aggravated robbery after he and another man allegedly attempted to rob Kelly Jewelers, 7045 S. State, around 6 p.m. Friday.
Hernandez walked into the store and was joined a few minutes later by another man, according to Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal. The second man pulled out a small silver handgun and told the manager to get on the floor. The second man threw a roll of duct tape to Hernandez, Hoyal said.
Before either could act, however, the manager pulled out his own handgun. Upon seeing the gun, the armed man ran out the door, and Hernandez was left unarmed in the store, according to Hoyal.
Police are searching for a man who is described as Hispanic with a thin build, very short hair, and a mustache. Hoyal said the man weighs about 145 to 160 pounds and was wearing a hooded sweatshirt at the time.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 801-743-7000.
