FBI offering $10,000 reward for Honey Bun Bandits
The FBI has announced they are offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrests and convictions of the persons responsible for a bank robbery in Salt Lake City, Utah, that occurred on Monday, Dec. 17, 2012.
"At approximately 11:30 a.m., two masked gunman entered the Zions Bank located at 1420 South and 300 West [in Salt Lake City]," said Debbie Dujanovic Bertram with the FBI. "One adult male subject was wearing a dark blue hooded sweatshirt and is approximately 6’-6’2” tall. The other adult male was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and is approximately 5’8”-6’ tall."
Bertram said no one was injured in the robbery, but customers and employees inside the bank had guns pointed at them and were threatened and ordered to the ground. The bandits also placed a package inside the bank, said it was a bomb, and left the scene.
"The package, which was wrapped in blue Christmas paper with snowmen printed on it, was not a bomb but rather a box of Mrs. Freshley’s Honey Buns," said Bertram."
The FBI continues to work with the Salt Lake City Police Department to solve this case. Both bank robbers should be considered armed and dangerous. The public is advised not to approach either of these individuals and asked to call in tips to the FBI at (801) 579-1400 or the Salt Lake City Police Department at (801) 799-3000.
