Mere minutes after she allegedly robbed a Utah bank, a woman was arrested standing across the street in front of a fast-food restaurant.
According to Salt Lake Police, the 43-year-old suspect — who was wearing a surgical mask and a blonde wig — walked into the Zions Bank at 3880 S. 700 East on Tuesday at 2:18 p.m. She “gave one of the bank tellers a note that said, 'I have a weapon, give me all your money in fives, tens and twenties,'” according to a probable cause statement.
The teller gave the suspect $5,000 in cash; the woman then “ran across the street to the Arctic Circle.” Police located her in front of the restaurant at 2:35 p.m. with “the mask the suspect had used and $5,000 cash." According to the probable cause statement, the woman was also identified by video surveillance footage.
The suspect was booked into the Salt Lake County jail for investigation of aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony. Her bail was set at $20,000.
