Utah police ask public to identify armed robbery suspect
Sandy police are looking for a man they suspect of committing two armed robberies in less than a week.
Police say the suspect robbed a Conoco gas station at 8612 S. 1300 East on July 15 and a Little Caesars Pizza at 7890 S. 1300 East on July 20.
Surveillance cameras at both locations recorded a short, Hispanic male concealing his face beneath an oversized red, white and black striped hooded sweatshirt. In both robberies, the suspect brandished a black handgun, took money from the register, and fled.
Police also believe the suspect was involved in at least two more armed robberies around Salt Lake Valley.
Sandy and Cottonwood Heights police believe the suspect was involved in the armed robbery of a Taco Bell at 1962 Fort Union Blvd. in Cottonwood Heights, and investigators from South Salt Lake and Cottonwood Heights think the same man was involved in the robbery of a Maverik Convenience Store at 2700 South Main Street in South Salt Lake on July 16.
Police are asking anyone with information about the robberies to call (801) 840-4000. All calls are confidential and anonymous.
