SALT LAKE CITY — Police confirmed that a suspect out of Utah was arrested in Las Vegas after asking for the public's help to identify the man who they say robbed two banks in the Salt Lake Valley.

Both robberies occurred Tuesday, according to the Salt Lake City Police Department. The first was at 4:23 p.m. at a Deseret Credit Union branch located at 9325 S. Village Shop Drive in Sandy.
