WEST JORDAN, Utah – Police from across Salt Lake County are looking for a man they believe is behind a series of fast food robberies on Thursday night.

The first happened at around 9 p.m. at a Sconecutter at 6149 South Cougar Lane (4800 West) in West Jordan. About an hour later, Unified Police were notified of a robbery at a Taco Bell located at 5534 West and 6200 South.

At around 10 p.m., just a few minutes after the Taco Bell robbery, a Little Caesars at 6973 South Cougar Lane was robbed, and then an Arctic Circle at 7800 South and 3765 West was robbed about 15 minutes later.

Police say each restaurant was robbed by a suspect with a black gun and a brown wig over his face. No one was hurt in any of the robberies.

The suspect is described as  a Hispanic male, about 5-feet-11-inches tall. He was wearing blue jeans and a grey hoodie with green lettering. He got into a black two-door car.

Police believe a second suspect may have been involved because the gunman was seen getting into the passenger seat of that vehicle at one of the robberies.
