MIDDLEPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) — A search is on by local police to locate a man who officers say was involved in a credit union robbery.
Police say they rushed to the scene of the robbery on Thursday afternoon on State Street, but the man had already fled the scene. Officers were able to take a still photo from security footage on the scene.
They believe the man who robbed the Cornerstone Community Federal Credit Union is a shorter 5’5″ to 5’8″ man with a stocky build, sporting scruffy facial hair and short dark hair. He wore a cap and glasses to obscure a good look at his face, but officers are looking for any help in identifying him.
The Cornerstone Community Federal Credit Union is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
Anybody with information is asked to call investigators at (716) 438-3337, or dispatch at (716) 438-3393.
