WARSAW – Police believe the same person involved in an attempted robbery of a credit union Tuesday in Warsaw was the same involved in a Nov. 12 robbery.
Indiana Lakes Federal Credit Union, 322 S. Detroit St., was the apparent target of a robbery on Tuesday afternoon.
Warsaw Police released very few details, but spokesman Brad Kellar said they see similarities with Tuesday’s incident and a Nov.12 bank robbery at First Federal Savings Bank, located at 402 E. Center St., in Warsaw.
“We believe it is the same suspect from the bank robbery on the 12th of November,” Kellar said, adding that suspects in both cases share a slender description and similar method of operation. They both fled on foot, too.
Reports of Tuesday’s robbery attempt was received by dispatchers early Tuesday afternoon. The Nov. 12 robbery came shortly after 12 noon.
Indiana Lakes Federal Credit Union is at the corner of South Detroit and East Winona Avenue. First Federal Savings Bank is less than three blocks away.
