Investigators starting looking into the August 8 robbery of the ENT Credit Union, located at 2336 North Wahsatch Avenue where a man entered the bank and demanded cash while armed with a handgun. 

According to CSPD, on August 29, Midnight Games, located at 411 North Circle Drive, was also robbed at gunpoint.
