Two men were arrested and booked into jail Saturday for a string of four robberies in Salt Lake County that police say ended when a witness to the last of the heists followed the alleged robbers home in his car.
The hold-ups began just after 10 a.m. on Friday, when a man walked into the First Utah Bank near 4900 W. 3500 South and verbally demanded money from the teller, said West Valley City police Sgt. Jason Hauer. He didn't get any cash, and took off in a green Pontiac with a getaway driver, Hauer said.
That afternoon, investigators suspect the same man hit a Zions Bank at 8375 W. 3500 South in Magna at about 1:30 p.m. This time, he showed the teller a note demanding money and alluding to a weapon, then fled with an undisclosed amount of money, also in a green Pontiac Grand Am, Unified Police Department Lt. Justin Hoyal said.
