OGDEN — A West Valley City man was charged in connection with a bank robbery that took place Thursday in Ogden.
Sean Thomas Moore, 42, was booked into jail Thursday on charges of robbery, a second-degree felony; failure to respond to officers, a third-degree felony; and theft by receiving stolen property, a second-degree felony.
Moore allegedly went into the KeyBank located at 3565 Harrison Blvd. in Ogden around 1:30 p.m. Thursday and demanded money from the teller, according to a probable cause statement.
Police say Moore was given an undisclosed amount of money and drove away in a silver car. Police later located the car and tried to pull over the driver. The car then sped up and lead officers on a pursuit, according to charging documents.
Officers eventually were able to stop the driver — whom they say is Moore — and took him into custody.
Police learned the car was reported as stolen out of West Valley City, the statement says.
During an interview, Moore allegedly confessed post Miranda to robbing the bank, charging documents say.
A woman was in the car during Moore’s arrest and was questioned by police. The woman has been released from police custody and no charges against her are pending, according to a Facebook post from the Ogden Police Department.
Moore’s first appearance in court is scheduled for Monday, July 30 in Ogden’s 2nd District Court.
Moore is being held at the Weber County Jail in lieu of a $25,000 bail, according to online court records.
