Robbery suspect dies in getaway crash
HARVARD, Ill. (3/11/09)--A man who allegedly robbed the Harvard Community CU died Monday in a single-vehicle crash while fleeing police officers. Robert Menk of Brookfield, Wis., entered the $9.3 million asset, Harvard,, Ill.-based credit union at about 9 a.m. and demanded money, according to Harvard Police Chief Dan Kazy-Garey. No one was injured. At the credit union, police would not say whether Menk was armed (Northwest Herald March 9). Menk left with the money on foot, but dye packs hidden with the cash activated outside the credit union, and the money was recovered, police said. When Harvard police officers arrived on the scene, they spotted a man, who was leaving a business establishment that was closed at the time, driving a Toyota Prius. When police tried to stop the vehicle, the driver fled. The vehicle then crashed into a tree, killing Menk.
