CU Branch Robbed Three Times in Three Weeks
Executives at the $1.4 billion Ascend Federal Credit Union are taking steps to evaluate security after one of their 17 locations has been robbed three times in three weeks.
The credit union confirmed media stories about the robberies but postponed taking questions about the incidents until later. No one has been injured in the robberies.
In each incident, a robber entered the CU's branch in Smyrna, Tenn., and implied he had a gun without actually displaying a weapon. He then demanded and received money before fleeing on foot to a car waiting nearby and speeding away.
Local media quoted the police speculating that the robberies had been conducted by the same person each time.
