Man robs two Spokane credit unions

Police believe one man is responsible for of robbing two credit unions inside Safeway stores Tuesday morning.

The first robbery was reported at the Alaska Credit Union inside the Safeway at 933 E. Mission Ave. just before 11 a.m. The man reportedly handed a teller a note that said he had a weapon and demanded cash.

While police were investigating that robbery, a second occurred at the Alaska Credit Union inside the Safeway at 2507 W. Wellesley Ave. He handed the teller a note that said he had a weapon and demanded cash. No gun was displayed in either robbery, police said.

Officer Ron VanTassel confirmed that police are investigating whether Tuesday’s robberies were committed by the same man who robbed three banks in Utah last month. The three robberies, one on Dec. 19 in West Valley City, Utah, and two on Dec. 27 in West Jordan, Utah, were all of banks located inside grocery stores. In those three cases, the robber displayed a gun tucked in his waistband.
