IAmericas Most WantedI re-enacts CU robbery
PHOENIX (5/20/08)--The TV show, America’s Most Wanted, aired a re-enactment Saturday of two kidnapping and robbery attempts--one of which took place in October at Desert Schools FCU, Phoenix. The first attempt was thwarted when three thieves realized that the loan officer at the $3.019 billion asset credit union did not have access to the credit union’s vault (The Arizona Republic May 16). The trio--armed with semiautomatic handguns and perhaps assault weapons--had kept the employee’s spouse and child hostage, restrained in disposable nylon restraints. In a second incident, the same thieves kept a Chandler, Ariz., bank manager and wife hostage in his home for 12 hours, and drove the manager to his Wells Fargo branch, where three employees were taken hostage while the thieves emptied the safe. The TV episode will feature a sketch of a possible suspect who bought a pair of handcuffs and shackles at a Mesa, Ariz., store days before the heist.
