Police are looking for a man who apparently has only months to live wanted for robbing banks in Utah and Idaho on Friday.
At about 4:30 p.m. a man in his mid-60s entered a Roy Wells Fargo Bank at 5600 S. 1900 West, presented a note stating he had four months to live and needed cash, and then made a threat requiring compliance. He fled with a "substantial amount of money" from the bank, said Roy Police Chief Greg Whinham.
The man is believed to have done the same thing earlier in the day at an Ireland Bank in Pocatello.
"If he is in need of care and treatment, we want to help end the crimes that he is committing before someone is harmed," Whinham said.
No weapons were used or seen by witnesses. The robber is described as white, with white hair; he was wearing glasses, blue jeans and a blue polo shirt.
"If his medical conditions are what is motivating him, we think we can help him in a different way," Whinham said.
Anyone with information about the man's identity or whereabouts should call Roy police at 801-629-8221.
