Temple’s Santa Fe Credit Union Robbed by Man With AK-47
Temple police and the FBI are investigating after a man robbed a Temple credit union with what appeared to be an AK-47 Wednesday morning.
Officers were dispatched to the Santa Credit Union at 1750 West Avenue A at 9:05 AM. A witness said a white male wearing a mask and dark clothing entered the building, fired several rounds into the ceiling, and demanded money.
After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the man fled in a silver or gray Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab pickup. In a news release, investigators said the truck's model year appeared to be somewhere between 1998 and early 2000's.
No injuries were reported.
Anyone with information about the crime or who can identify the suspect is asked to contact the Temple Police Department at (254) 298-5500.
