WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah -- The FBI and West Valley Police continue to search for two men dubbed "the honey bun bandits."

On December 27, the men robbed the Central Credit Union at 4090 South 4800 West in West Valley City.

Authorities have released new surveillance video of the incident. One of the suspects is wearing a hoodie and holding a gun.

The FBI believes this robbery is related to another one at a Zion's Bank in Salt Lake City in early December.

Police gave the men the nickname "honey bun bandits" because during the Zion's Bank robbery they placed a package in the bank, said it was a bomb and left. The package turned out to be a box of honey buns.

Police said one suspect is African-American with a medium build and between 6 feet and 6 foot 2 inches tall.

The other suspect is a white man with a small build, between 5 foot 8 inches and 6 feet tall.

The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. If you have any information, please call police.
