One dead three arrested after CU robbery
TAMPA, Fla. (9/28/09)--Three robbery suspects were apprehended by police and one person was found dead, an apparent suicide, in the aftermath of a Thursday robbery of Grow Financial CU, in Tampa, Fla. Officers surrounded a Tampa home looking for suspects after receiving a tip that the suspects were driving a Chevrolet Yukon and following the car to a Tampa home (abcactionnews.com Sept. 25) . Once at the home, police caught one man who ran down the street, while two others ran into the house. The two suspects turned themselves in when a SWAT team arrived. A third man fired several shots at officers during a standoff. The standoff ended when members of the police tactical response team broke into the house after firing tear gas inside. The third man was found dead by police. He took his own life, according to the medical examiner. He had a bullet wound to his head (St. Petersburg Times Sept. 24). The 12:24 p.m. robbery prompted lockdowns at area schools while police searched for the robbers. The incident may be related to a string of robberies by perpetrators who have worn strange disguises--most notably sticking up a pawn shop while wearing beauty shop sinks over their heads, police said.
