Sandy police caught the man they suspect robbed a bank Thursday afternoon after he ditched his disguise and ducked into a movie.
About 3:50 p.m., the man walked into the Wells Fargo bank at 9491 S. 700 East, which is part of a strip mall, wearing a big straw hat, a big, fake bushy beard and a track suit, said Sgt. Jon Arnold. He walked up to a teller and demanded she hand over all the cash in her drawer, Arnold said.
The suspect indicated he had a gun, but he never displayed one, Arnold added. He then left the bank with a bag of money, ran across the parking lot and ditched the costume, including the track suit, in a nearby trash bin.
