SOUTH SALT LAKE – Police in South Salt Lake and Salt Lake City are asking the public for help in locating an armed robbery suspect.
Detectives from both departments work as a team to find a man suspected of aggravated robbery at two different cell phone stores.
One of them happened Monday morning at the T-Mobile store at 3300 South Street near State Street in South Salt Lake City.
According to witnesses, the man entered calmly, demanded money and lifted his shirt to show he had a handgun in his belt.
The police believe it was the same man who robbed the other mobile phone store in the same way.
According to Danielle Croyle of the South Salt Lake Police Department, the suspect is about six feet tall, with dark hair and a slight build. On both flights, he wore a glove on his left hand only.
“Displaying a gun and threatening or using it in a threatening way to hurt (people) causes undue stress for everyone involved,” Croyle said.
Detectives aren’t sure if he’s trying to cover up an obvious feature like a tattoo or a scar, but they think he’s dangerous and needs to be caught quickly.
They are asking anyone with information about the suspect or these crimes to call South Salt Lake Police at 840-4000 or Salt Lake Police, 801-799-3000.
