Three sought in robbery of East Side credit union

Police are seeking at least three suspects in the robbery of an East Side bank Thursday morning.

Witnesses said the robbers, who wore masks and were dressed in black, fled the Meriwest Credit Union, 5801 E. Broadway, in a tan sedan about 9:30 a.m., a Tucson police news release said.

An employee called 911, saying she could hear another employee screaming from the office lobby, “We’re being robbed.”

At least one customer and several employees were inside during the robbery, police said.

Nobody was injured and no shots were fired, said Officer Linda Galindo, a police spokeswoman.

Witnesses did not report seeing weapons, but the robbers implied they were armed, the news release said.

Patrol officers found the getaway car, a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu reported stolen the night before, abandoned nearby, police said.

Police said the men got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
