Earlier this week police responded to three different robbery reports on the same night. The business that were hit were a Wendy’s, a Subway, and a KFC, all in Salt Lake County. The customers that were in the restaurants all gave the officers the same description of the thief, white male, 35-45 years old, bald or buzz cut with a slight goatee, wearing a brown or black hoodie with a Vans logo. There is no report that the man had a weapon but at each location he handed a note to the employee demanding the money. The man has still not been apprehended but police are concerned because they say this is a very brazen act to rob three locations in a matter of something like 90 minutes.
Utah Robbery and Theft Laws
The severity of any theft crime in Utah is dependent on the amount of goods stolen. In the instance above it is unclear how much money the man made off with but it is clear that he will be charged with three separate crimes and the results of that may be an enhancement in the crime or punishment. Theft Laws are very broad and include everything from clear robberies like the one described above to simply removing or changing a price tag on merchandise.
