Investigators are hopeful that an announcement made yesterday by Wells Fargo and the Utah Bankers Association will assist with the investigation. They released the following statement:
“Wells Fargo, in conjunction with the Utah Bankers Association, is offering up to a $10,000 reward for original information leading to the identification, apprehension, and conviction of the person(s) involved in the robbery of the Wells Fargo bank located at 797 South Main Street, Cedar City, UT 84720 on Saturday, January 4, 2014, at 2:04 PM.”
Police hope the reward will be incentive for anyone with information to come forward and assist in the investigation. Police are investigating the potential connection between this robbery and the robbery of a Mountain America Credit Union that occurred in Cedar City in February of last year. There are similarities in the physical appearance of both suspects that lead police to investigate the possibility that these cases are related. While we can’t say for sure that they are the same suspect, it is something that we are investigating.
The suspect in this case is described as being a white male in his sixties with gray hair. He was last seen wearing a dark colored over-sized coat, a tan hat and blue jeans. He is described as being between 5’08” and 6’ tall.
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the Cedar City Police Department at 435-586-2956.
