Fred Meyer Hit By Grab and Run

A Fred Meyer Jewelers at the South Towne Mall mall in Sandy, Utah, was
robbed Jan. 26.
 
Sandy Police Sgt. Troy Arnold tells JCK
that around 11:40 a.m. Jan. 26, a man walked into the store and asked
to see a specific piece of jewelry. As the store clerk removed the item from
the case, the suspect grabbed it from her hand and ran.
 
A gun dropped out of his waistband as he fled. Police recovered the weapon and
discovered it was a pellet gun, Arnold says.
 
“He never pulled it out or pointed it at anyone,” Arnold says. No one was
injured during the robbery.
 
The man ran out through the mall parking lot. Police are reviewing surveillance
video from a neighboring business. “The suspect was in a well-known clothing
store and they became suspicious of his activity, so they started watching him
closely with their cameras,” Arnold says.
 
Arnold says Fred Meyer’s surveillance videos are operated through corporate
offices and police will review that tape as soon as it’s made available.
