YORK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) – Deputies say a suspect fled the credit union he was trying to rob when the teller hit the panic alarm Friday morning.

Lt. Dennis Ivey with the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office said the suspect entered the Credit Union Service Center around 9:30 a.m. and stood in line for the teller. When another customer came into the business and stood in line, the suspect walked out of the bank.

A few minutes later, the suspect came back into the credit union and once again stood in line. Once it was his turn, the suspect passed a note to the teller demanding a stack of $100s and $50s.

The teller pushed the panic button and the suspect took his note and fled on foot without obtaining any money, Ivey said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
