SALT LAKE CITY -- Two days on the run was too much for a man wanted for robbing a bank.
A man suspected of robbing the Goldenwest Credit Union in Ogden on Wednesday turned himself in to police on Friday.
John Edward Dean, 37, who was wanted in connection with the robbery at the Goldenwest in the 100 block of 26th Street, turned himself in, said Salt Lake City Police Lt. Isaac Atencio.
"He gave his name and said he wanted to turn himself in on a bank robbery warrant and said the robbery occurred in Ogden," Atencio said.
Atencio said Salt Lake City police did not show a warrant for Dean, but after checking with Ogden police, they had the information verified.
Salt Lake City police met Dean at the Burger King at 575 E. 400 South and took him into custody.
Ogden police said Dean entered the bank and presented the teller with a threatening note.
The teller gave him an undisclosed amount of money and Dean left southbound on Wall Avenue.
"When officers made contact with him, he complained of kidney pain," Atencio said. "We had medical come out and they transported him to an area hospital."
Atencio said calling the cops may have been a last resort for Dean.
"He may have felt that he didn't have too much run in him. Sometimes guys get tired of running. Sometimes, if they have a medical condition, they see this as a way they can get help."
Since Dean was taken to the hospital, Ogden police officers were not able to go question him. Lt. Shawn Hamblin said an Ogden detective on standby would go to Salt Lake City to question Dean as soon as he was released from the hospital.
"We're kind of waiting for Salt Lake to call us back and tell us if he's going to be medically released or not," Hamblin said.
"Last I heard, they had taken him to a medical facility and hadn't released him."
