Shot fired at Bellco CU during robbery no one hurt
LAKEWOOD, Colo. (7/24/08)--County sheriff's deputies were searching Wednesday afternoon for an armed man who fired off a shot during a robbery at a Littleton, Colo., branch of Bellco CU. No one was hurt, said Grace Stanton, public relations consultant for Bellco CU. Bellco is headquartered in Greenwood Village, Colo. The robbery occurred at the Southwest Plaza in Littleton, she told News Now. The incident was reported via a 911 call from someone inside the credit union. Thirteen people--eight men and five women--were inside the credit union when the robbery occurred at about 9:30 a.m., said a spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Sheriff's office. News reports indicated those inside were forced to the ground (ABC7, CBS4.com, and myfoxcolorado.com July 23). Jefferson County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jim Shires said a SWAT officers surrounded the credit union because there were conflicting reports as to whether another gunman remained inside the credit union. Photos on various media sites showed SWAT team members with guns drawn at the site. The robber fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and the keys to an employee's minivan, which was found abandoned later, authorities said. The Littleton branch was closed for the remainder of the day, according to Bellco's website.
