APD seeking suspect in credit-union robbery
Anchorage police were conducting a Midtown suspect search Saturday, after the armed robbery of a credit union.
APD spokesman MJ Thim said in an email that a report of the robbery came in at 1:18 p.m., with nobody injured in the incident.
“We responded to a report of a bank robbery at Credit Union 1 on Eureka Street,” Thim wrote. “We have no other information to release at this time.”
FBI spokeswoman Staci Feger-Pellessier said the male suspect “walked in showing a gun,” and left with an undisclosed amount of money. No shots were fired.
Surveillance imagery from the credit union showed the suspect – about 5 feet, 9 inches tall – wearing a black mask covering the majority of his face, as well as black gloves and a distinctive red, black and white flannel jacket.
The branch was closed Saturday afternoon, and a manager declined comment.
Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call APD at 907-786-8900 or the Anchorage FBI office at 907-276-4441. Tips can also be submitted to Anchorage Crime Stoppers at 907-561-STOP or through its website.
