HERRIMAN, Utah (ABC4) – An alleged serial bank robber, dubbed the “Band-Aid Bandit,” has been taken into custody in Utah by federal officials. In the federal indictment, the Herriman man has been charged with committing seven robberies across the Wasatch Front.

According to the FBI, 32-year-old Cody Jensen was taken into custody on Thursday, Aug. 19, by special agents and members of the agency’s Violent Crimes Task Force.

Below are the robberies in which Jensen is being charged in committing:

  • Dec. 9, 2019: Cyprus Credit Union inside the Walmart Supercenter at 11328 South Jordan Gateway in South Jordan.
  • Jan. 3, 2020: America First Credit Union inside the Dan’s Foods at 1360 South Foothill Drive in Salt Lake City.
