Bank robbers torch getaway car, on the run

Suspected bank robbers set fire to their getaway vehicle Friday before making their escape in another vehicle in Lincoln County. The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a robbery at the Coulee Dam Credit Union in Creston around 3:45 p.m. Friday. It was reported that the robbers were in a light tan or gold extended cab Chevy truck and had headed north, according to a Sheriff’s Office press release. Deputies searched county roads for the truck, finding it about an hour later on fire on Telford Road. It had been reported stolen from the Kennewick area. It is assumed that the robbers had another car waiting. Anyone who may have seen the truck or anything unusual is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at (509) 725-3501.
