There are as many as four occupants in the vehicle: two black males, one black female and a man who is possibly Hispanic. The female is described as wearing very short shorts, Cedar City Police Sgt. Jerry Womack said.

CEDAR CITY – Police are searching for two people wanted in the robbery of a check-cashing service located at 642 S. Main Street in Cedar City Thursday afternoon.

Cedar City Police Sgt. Jerry Womack said the suspects are described as a black male and black female, wearing hats.

The couple entered Advance America a little after 4 p.m. and demanded money from the clerk, Womack said. The clerk was also told by the suspects that “if they called anyone, they would hurt their family,” he added.

The suspects left the downtown area driving a silver sedan, heading south. Womack said while there is no reason to believe the pair will strike again, he cautioned the public not to approach the couple if they are seen, but to call 911 immediately.
