SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah, March 29, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — The FBI in Salt Lake City is asking for the public’s assistance finding a man suspected in five bank robberies that have occurred in the last two months.

The suspect is described as being in his 30s, between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall with a husky build, black hair and blue eyes, the FBI said in a news release.

After the robberies, the man headed to an unknown vehicle a few blocks away.

On Feb. 8, the suspect robbed the Jordan Credit Union located at 658 W. Center St., Midvale. He used a demand note. The suspect wore a camouflage hat and an orange shirt, which were later found behind the credit union in a dumpster.

On Feb. 23, the same unknown suspect robbed the Zions Bank at 159 W. Center St. in Midvale, according to authorities. He displayed a note that stated he had a weapon, and he asked for all the money while telling the employee to remain calm.

In the next three robberies, the suspect also showed a note to the teller that threatened use of a gun, he took the money, and he left on foot.

On March 1, the suspect robbed Washington Federal located at 2262 S. Highland Drive in Salt Lake City. On March 14,  officials say he robbed the U.S. Bank at 1575 S. Main St., Salt Lake City.
