Police looking for woman on bank robbing spree around Salt Lake Valley


SALT LAKE VALLEY, Utah (ABC4 News) Police around the valley are on the lookout for a woman they say has possibly robbed six banks in two days. 

Salt Lake Police Lt. Scott Smalley said the woman entered the Chase Bank Saturday at 9:35 a.m. located at 1295 S. Redwood Rd. and handed the teller a note demanding cash but left without getting any money. Smalley speculated she may have become spooked due to the bullet proof glass that surrounded the tellers. 

According to Unified Police Lt. Brian Lohrke, a woman matching the same description walked into the Wells Fargo located at 4711 South Highland Dr. handed their teller a note also demanding money before leaving with an undisclosed amount of cash. 

Cottonwood Heights Assistant Police Chief Paul Brenneman said the suspect then entered a University Credit Union around 11 a.m. located at 7220 S Highland Dr. and passed the teller a note demanding money, once again, leaving with an undisclosed amount of cash. 

The suspect said to be in her 30s, then allegedly went to the Wells Fargo located at 9311 S. Highland in Sandy. The details of that robbery have yet to be made available. 

Soon after that, a robbery occurred at 11:55 a.m. at the Deseret First Credit Union located at 9325 S. South Village Shop Drive in Sandy. The suspect description is the same as the prior robberies as well as the manner in which she robbed the Credit Union. 

Smalley said she is also a possible suspect in the robbery of a Bank in West Valley City on Friday but police are still trying to determine if it was the same woman. 

No weapons were said to be involved in any of the robberies. 

The woman is described as a white female in her 30s or 40s, 5 feet 3-5 inches tall with a heavier build. She was wearing a dark colored shirt, pajama style pants, a blue bandana and glasses and said to have possibly freshly dyed black hair. 

There is currently no description of any vehicle. 

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 as there are multiple jurisdictions involved.
