A Utah man is in custody after being arrested for investigation of robbery at a Magna convenience store.
Aggravated Robbery Precedes Running Down Street with Gun
A couple of police officers may have been a bit surprised to see a man wearing a full-face ski mask running down a Magna area street. Of course, they were probably even more surprised once they realized he was carrying part of a cash register and a gun.
The officers followed the masked man and were just about to talk to him when they got word that a local convenience store had just experienced an armed robbery. The store’s clerk said that the robber demanded money and the clerk gave it to him. At some point, the man got behind the counter and supposedly took off with part of the cash register.
That’s where the police driving down the street came in. They found the man and tried to question him, but he wouldn’t stop. The officers finally stopped the man as he headed through someone’s yard. He’s now being investigated for aggravated robbery.
This particular suspect doesn’t have a lengthy criminal history; in fact, the only thing he’s been arrested for was a misdemeanor intoxication charge several years ago, to which he pleaded no contest.
