For a while, West Jordan police thought they might have found the "Dreadlocks Bandit" serial robber. Instead, after a wild, high-speed chase, they settled for a suspected female car thief.
"Turned out she wasn't our robbery suspect, so we're still out there looking," West Jordan police Sgt. Dan Roberts said Wednesday.
WJPD officers were searching for the dreadlocks wig-wearing armed robber after he or she held up the Apollo Burgers restaurant at 7700 S. Redwood Rd. about 9 p.m. Tuesday. When the officers pulled into a nearby 7-Eleven parking lot, at 1680 W. 7000 S., they spotted a woman with a man who generally matched the suspect description.
