Teller pegs member of partner CU as robber
OGDEN, Utah (12/19/07)--A credit union teller helped authorities nab a robbery suspect after she recognized the robber as a person who’d made an inquiry a week earlier at a partner credit union. On Dec. 11, Elrachio Naguan Craig allegedly entered the Goldenwest FCU in Ogden and handed the teller a note demanding money. Craig was wearing a yellow-hooded sweatshirt with “Wyoming” written across the front and nothing covering his face (The Salt Lake Tribune Dec. 17). After the teller handed over $1,176 in cash, the robber fled the credit union, according to the FBI. After the robbery, the teller told authorities that she recognized the robber as someone who had asked about an account at Cyprus CU in West Jordan, Utah, where she had worked as a teller a week before. Through an alliance agreement, account holders at Cypress can manage their accounts at Goldenwest. Credit union officials found the Cyprus transaction made the week before and learned the account belonged to Craig, the FBI said. Police compared a booking photo to the credit union’s surveillance footage, and found a match. Police also received seven phone calls from people identifying Craig as the robber. Craig admitted to the robbery, the FBI said. He is charged with one count of credit union robbery, according to court records. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
