Locked doors thwart attempted robbery at credit union
UPDATED 2:20 p.m.
CHAMPAIGN — Champaign police are investigating an attempted robbery at a credit union Wednesday afternoon that was thwarted by locked doors.
Police spokeswoman Rene Dunn said preliminary information indicates that at around 12:55 p.m., Central Illinois Credit Union personnel noticed suspicious activity by two people who were outside the business, 2106 West John St., and locked the doors.
One of the two tried to get into the credit union, but could not. The two then rode off on bicycles, which were later found by police.
No one was injured during the attempted robbery.
The credit union was robbed in May, one of a number of robberies at financial institutions within a few days at the time.
