Credit union robbed Monday; police continue seeking clues

Beloit Police Capt. Bill Tyler is urging people to call the police department at 608-364-6800 if they have information about a man who robbed First American Credit Union, 746 Fourth St. Monday.

The police have released a surveillance photo showing a man with a medium build wearing a cap and a dark colored sweatshirt with a hood.

The Beloit Police Department responded to a reported hold-up at the credit union at 9:30 a.m. Monday. Department investigators, evidence technicians and patrol units responded to the robbery after credit union representatives called in.

A white male entered the credit union, presented a note to the teller, and left with an undisclosed amount of cash from the bank.

Tyler said no weapon was displayed.

Tyler said the standard evidence was collected — analysis for latent fingerprints, DNA and footwear impressions.

“I can’t say what we’ve recovered so far,” Tyler said.

Tyler added that the canine unit dog picked up the man’s track for a short distance, but then lost the scent. Police do not have any vehicle description or witness reports of the man fleeing in a vehicle.

Tyler declined to give any more details about the man’s appearance or any evidence found, saying it was necessary to protect the investigation.
