SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A transient has been arrested on suspicion of robbing five banks and credit unions around Salt Lake City since early February.

Michael Bacon was arrested Friday for investigation of robbery after police said he led officers on a foot chase in the city.

The 45-year-old Bacon is accused of robbing branches of U.S. Bank and Chase Bank within 45 minutes of each other on Monday, the latest robberies in the string.

Police believe the suspect also is connected to Feb. 2 and March 21 robberies of separate Zions Bank branches and a Feb. 19 robbery of a Mountain America Credit Union branch.

Police have described Bacon as a transient known to frequent homeless shelters in downtown Salt Lake City.
