3 Men In Halloween Masks Try To Rob Credit Union

MADISON HEIGHTS (AP) – Three men wearing Halloween masks have been arrested after trying to rob a credit union in Madison Heights, about six miles north of Detroit.

The Daily Tribune in Royal Oak reports that a woman called police Thursday morning after seeing the men force her adult daughter into the Family Services Credit Union about 8:15 a.m. as she opened a rear door to start the business day.

Police say one man stood guard outside as the other two told the employee to open the vault. All three ran into a nearby wooded area when she was unable to do so.

A police tracking dog led officers to the men, who range in age from 18 to 28. Police say they are from Oak Park, Detroit and Toledo, Ohio.

    And these idiots could have had jobs building the new bridge (no bridge cards though), or gone to Alabama to pick crops replacing all the illegals. I’m just pointing out possibilities! Now we have to support their butts in jail. Hope the masks come in handy there.
