Would-be robber gave CU five-minute warning
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (8/18/10)--A possible would-be robber of Empower FCU, Syracuse, N.Y., has been charged with attempted robbery, according to local media reports. On Friday, a man wearing a bandanna on his face entered Empower FCU’s drive-through. He told a teller he was planning to rob the credit union and would be back in five minutes. He then left the area and police were called, said The Post-Standard (Aug. 14). Martin J. Richardson, 54, is accused of attempting to rob the credit union. Police found him about 30 minutes after the threat was made. Richardson, who was riding a bicycle, refused orders to stop and was taken into custody, the newspaper said. He was charged with attempted robbery in the third degree and resisting arrest. He is being held by authorities while he awaits arraignment in Fulton City court, the newspaper said. The potential would-be robber never entered the credit union. Empower FCU closed as a precaution after the threat was made. Empower FCU has $830.9 million in assets.
