SOUTH SALT LAKE, UTAH – November 11, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) – Two male suspects, ages 21 and 13, have been arrested in connection with the Tuesday robbery of a U.S. Bank branch.

According to a report by the South Salt Lake Police Department, a man entered the branch at 2715 South 300 West at about 6 p.m., and told a bank employee, “Give me cash and no one will be hurt.”

The suspect did not display or brandish any weapon during the robbery. The bank employee handed over an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect was last seen running westbound from the bank. No bank employees were injured during the robbery.

The suspect ran to a waiting vehicle and drove to West Valley City. Police from West Valley City and South Salt Lake were able to locate the suspect vehicle—a white Ford Taurus—as it pulled into a parking lot at 3528 South Redwood Road. Two male suspects were taken into custody after they exited the vehicle and were arrested without incident.

The 21-year-old suspect is identified as Jorge Hector Zamora of South Salt Lake. He was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail and charged with one count of robbery, a second degree felony. The 13-year-old male was booked on the same charges and sent to Salt Lake County Juvenile Detention.

A search warrant was obtained for the suspect vehicle. Inside, police located a mask, clothing and cash from the robbery.
