STCU Indian Trail Branch Robbed

About noon today, for the second time in less than four months, STCU's Indian Trail Branch was robbed. This time, the robber displayed a weapon.

"We are thankful no one was injured," said Terri Boyer, director of branch operations for STCU. "Our Indian Trail team handled the incident with grace and utmost professionalism."

Witnesses described the robber as a white male, approximately 5-foot-10. He appears slender in security photographs. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, sunglasses, ski mask, gloves and blue jeans, and carried a black and gray backpack.

Surveillance video confirmed that he escaped by bicycle, with an undisclosed amount of cash. He may have removed some of those clothes while riding away.

The Indian Trail Branch closed for the remainder of the day, but will reopen on Thursday.

The previous robbery at Indian Trail was April 23. STCU is fully cooperating with law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, and appreciates their efforts to solve both robberies.
