FARMINGTON -- Police have released three photos of the man they say robbed a Zions Bank in Farmington on Wednesday.
Police Chief Wayne Hansen said a woman called police after seeing news reports Wednesday night about the robbery.
An hour before the robbery, a man asked her if she would give him $10 for gas at the Smith's Fuel Center, Hansen said.
"She felt nervous about it, but paid for his gas with her debit card," Hansen said.
Police pulled the surveillance tapes and found photos of the man putting gas into a Chevy Lumina.
One photo shows a man in a blue hoodie like the one the bank robber wore at the bank, located near the intersection of Somerset Street and Main Street, around 5:55 p.m. Wednesday, Hansen said.
The robber told a teller to fill a bag with money and then fled. He didn't show a weapon, Hansen said.
Witnesses reported the robber left the bank in a tan-colored sedan. Witnesses also told police the same car was spotted in a subdivision before the robbery. A police K-9 unit tracked the suspect's scent from the bank to the neighborhood, but the car was not there.
The robber is described as about 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, in his late teens to early 20s and having a young-sounding voice, Hansen said. He was wearing blue jeans, a blue hoodie and a cover over part of his face.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Farmington police at 801-451-5453.
