CHARGES FILED AGAINST REPENTANT ROBBER

A repentant gunman may have had second thoughts about robbing an antique business, but that didn't stop the wheels of justice.

Charges were filed in connection with the case Wednesday in 3rd Circuit Court.The gunman entered DeConde's, 270 E. 100 South, about 5:30 p.m. Friday wearing a hockey mask. The "polite" would-be robber first made an employee and owner empty their pockets, a Salt Lake police report said.

He then led them around the store, demanded about 100 items be put in two duffel bags and into the trunk of his car.

But before he left, he apparently felt guilty, apologized and told the victims to take the items out of the car. Within 30 minutes of leaving the place, he called and again apologized.

A 24-year-old man was charged with aggravated robbery, a 1st-degree felony, in connection with the incident. Bail has been set for $10,000.
