Surveillance Pics Show Attempted Robbery At Aventa Credit Union


Police are hoping surveillance photos will help catch a would-be robber who attempted to steal from the Aventa Credit Union on South Cascade in Colorado Springs Thursday.

Police say a man walked into the Aventa Credit Union on 426 S. Cascade just before noon and attempted to rob the teller, but got away with nothing. No one was injured, and the suspect was last seen getting away on foot.

Police are looking for a heavy-built white male, about 6 feet tall, wearing a mask and white knee high socks with black shoes. He was also wearing a black hat.

Anyone with any information about this crime are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.

    To Colorado: If you pay close attention when entering a financial institution, you'll notice a sign that indicates that hats and sunglasses should be removed prior to entering the building. Essentially, same as no shirt, no shoes, no service concept. If they aren't removed, then the teller can ask them to remove these articles. If the signs aren't posted, they definitely should be for sure. Security guards, for the safety of the tellers, customers, and anyone else in the building should conform to the institutions robbery policies vs. attempting to be a hero and risking the lives of others.

    I'm telling you what's up with the security guards letting these jerks in? With ski masks on no less. Like I said it another post on another story, I'm for banks stopping people that have hoodies, caps pulled down low over eyes, ski masks...You know they're up to know good when they come in that way. Restaurants do the "no shoes, no shirt, no service" routine, why can't banks & credit unions?

    ACU member would you prefer they just call it a financial instution robbery? what diffrence does it make if it was a bank or a CU. I am a CU member with my family members being CU managers and presidents. It really does not make a difference in this case must we be "politically correct" 24 hours a day 7 days a week?

    Why does this Credit Union get hit so often, you would think since the majority of its customers are Police Officers, Fireman, and Deputies it would seem less than ideal to rob....hmmmm maybe NOT!

    Im sure he hasn't changed his clothes by now. So, we're looking for a fat white guy about six feet tall? That sure narrows it down. I'll be on the look out for him.

    Bank robbery is less than an original concept so being a copycat is a moot point.

    Sounds like someone is trying to be a copycat to the more notorious bank robber in the area.
