The FBI is asking for the public’s help to locate the “TGIF Bandit,” who is believed to have robbed three Utah banks or credit unions inside three grocery stores in three months — and always on a Friday.
• On Friday, Dec. 6, a man robbed the Cyprus Credit Union inside the Walmart at 11328 South Jordan Gateway in South Jordan.
• On Friday, Jan. 3, a man robbed the America First Credit Union inside the Dan’s Market at 1360 S. Foothill Drive in Salt Lake City.
• On Friday, Feb. 7, a man robbed the US Bank inside the Smith’s Food and Drug at 4080 W. 9000 South in West Jordan.
In all three robberies, the man gave the teller a note that demanding money and indicating he had a weapon. Authorities believe the same man committed all three robberies. He’s described as 5 feet 6 inches tall, slim and white.
Anyone with information about these robberies is asked to contact the FBI’s Salt Lake City field office at (801) 579-6400. You also can submit a tip at: tips.fbi.gov.
