The robbery was the fifth in Salt Lake City in just 48 hours, and the holdups have had police scrambling to capture suspects. Earlier Friday, robbers in "old man" masks also hit a jewelry store near Trolley Square.

Police described the robber from Friday’s Zion’s Bank holdup as a white man between 50 and 60 years old. He stood about 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighed 160 pounds and had a gray beard and moustache. He wore a dark blue baseball cap displaying a yellow-gold Maltese cross, a white t-shirt, a gray or beige jacket with a hood, dark pants and working or hiking boots.

The police department is offering a reward for information that leads to the man’s capture and conviction. Anyone with information is urged to call 801-799-3000. Anonymous tips may be sent by texting the keyword TIPSLCPD plus any relevant information to 274637. Reference: case #14-29062.
