Jefferson City police release photos of credit union robber
Wednesday, December 22, 2010
Surveillance photos released by police show the robber in the credit union holdup in Jefferson City on Monday.
In making the photos available to news media on Tuesday, police Capt. Doug Shoemaker said there were no new leads in the case.
The robbery alarm was called in at approximately 4 p.m. Monday at Missouri Credit Union, located at 3200 W. Edgewood Drive.
Employees described the suspect as 5-feet-5 and wearing a black ski mask, black pants, black gloves, and a red hooded ‘hoodie’-type of sweatshirt. Shoemaker said Tuesday the suspect is believed to be "a light-skinned black male or female." The ski mask concealed the gender of the suspect.
Witnesses said the suspect came into the business, yelled for everybody to get down on the floor and then demanded money from the tellers. After getting an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect, who did not display a weapon, left the scene through the front door and into a silver Dodge Stratus or similar type of vehicle.
Anyone with information should contact Jefferson City police at (573) 634-6400 or anonymously through CrimeStoppers at 659-TIPS.
