    The man did not appear to be armed? Why the hell did they give him any money. Maybe he note asked them very nicely to hand over all the cash!!

    This guy again? “The FBI Salt Lake City Division is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the Duffel Bag Bandit,” Description from Cedar City, Mountain America CU robbery is pretty close: “Witnesses to the bank robberies have described him as a white male, approximately 50 to 60 years old, with short gray hair. Some witnesses have described him as approximately 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall and weighing between 145 and 180 pounds.”

        The FBI web page announcing the reward is still up. Google search for the entire second sentence of my comment. No mention there that he has been apprehended.

    Why don’t they have a sign at the entrance to the bank that says no hats or sunglasses beyond this point. Also, how about upgrade your cameras to get some better pictures.

    And while we’re at it, I would love to someday hear about a teller asking a robber to see his gun before she hands over the cash. I know that will never happen but I’m thinking half of these bandits aren’t armed.

      Yes James, they should have a sign that says “please present your gun to the cashier if you would like to rob us, otherwise we will not take you seriously”
