Michael T. Gagon (10/3/76), who intimated that he had a gun, demanded all of the money from an Express Market store clerk. The clerk refused Gagon’s demands and he left the store empty-handed. Gagon fled in a maroon vehicle that was spotted by responding officers. A brief pursuit ensued, during which Gagon abandoned the vehicle in the area of 360 N. Jennifer Way and fled on foot. Officers chased Gagon and took him into custody a short distance later. The vehicle that Gagon drove was stolen out of Sandy. Officers booked Gagon into jail on several charges, including robbery, fleeing from an officer, and possession of a stolen vehicle.
