Local News in Brief : Fullerton : Robbers Take Cash From Credit Union

Two men robbed an employees’ credit union Monday and escaped with an undetermined amount of cash, authorities said.

Fullerton police said one of the robbers carried a small handgun and demanded money from a teller during the 11:40 a.m. robbery of the Beckman Employees Credit Union, in the 400 block of East Imperial Highway.

No injuries were reported in the heist, and no shots were fired.

The men fled on a motorcycle last seen headed west on Imperial Highway, Police Lt. Bud Lathrop said.


One of the suspects was described as a white male in his early 30s, 5-foot-9, with a medium build and black hair. He wore a sports jacket and black pants, Lathrop said. The other was described only as wearing a red motorcycle helmet.

The motorcycle was described by witnesses as medium-size “with a lot of chrome,” Lathrop said.
