Texas teller saves member held hostage
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (8/10/09)--A teller with Security Service FCU in San Antonio helped a member avoid a potentially dangerous situation after receiving a withdrawal slip from the member asking for help because she was being held against her will. The teller was working at the credit union’s drive-through window July 29 when a female member drove up to conduct a transaction (San Antonio News-Express July 29). She gave the teller a withdrawal slip that said, “Don’t give me any money. Help.” The teller alerted her supervisors, who called the police. She also stalled the member until police arrived 10 minutes later. Police surrounded the vehicle. Hiding in the backseat of the woman’s car was a man who had approached her earlier. The man had taken the woman’s car keys and forced her to drive to the credit union.
