Trail for detectives grows cold

Patrick Parkinson, Of the Record staff

The trail has gone cold in the search for two men who robbed a gas station in Summit Park Aug. 6 and Nov. 1, the authorities say.

The recent theft occurred when a man inside the Sinclair store at 185 Aspen Drive in the Snyderville Basin began waving a pistol in the face of an employee at the business. No suspects have been detained in the robbery that occurred around 5 p.m.

A witness described the robber as being 5-feet-7-inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds. The man was last seen traveling east, on foot, away from the store near Parleys Summit, according to Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputy Josh Wall.

Because descriptions of the suspects do not match, Wall believes a different man robbed the store Aug. 6 at roughly 4 p.m.

That thief in August had dark hair and a dark complexion and wore a blue bandanna on his face. He stood about 5-feet-7-inches tall and was reportedly in his 30s. He also brandished a black pistol and stole money and a pack of Marlboro cigarettes.

The man who owned the store at the time of the incident said he hadn’t been robbed in three years. Wall said the owner of the business has since changed.
