SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah — South Salt Lake police officers arrested a suspected bank robber 17 minutes after the robbery.

Around 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, the Zions Bank at 700 East and 3900 South was robbed.

A woman wearing a blonde wig and a surgical mask handed a note demanding cash to a teller.

The teller followed the instructions and the woman left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police swarmed the area, and a woman matching the suspect description was spotted in front of a fast food restaurant across the street from the bank.

The woman was arrested and officers recovered a blonde wig, surgical mask and the cash in her bag. No weapon was found.

43-year-old Nannette Louise Perkins was booked in the Salt Lake Couny jail on suspicion of aggravated robbery.

Perkins was arrested after a string of bank robberies in 2017.
