Authorities said the man entered the credit union, located at 4900 N.C. Highway 55 at Park West Crossing Shopping Center. 

Investigators said the man waited in line, allowing several people to go in front of him. When the man got to the teller’s window, he handed the teller a note demanding money, investigators said.

    ricosha; I'm sorry to hear that you were present while this occurred and you mention that he probably will never be caught; however, This individual will be arrested shortly...you'll see. Pictures that get posted do result in the public responding with information and thus able to provide a positive ID.

    In Durham, there must be a mistake, he must have been trying to give the teller the money, not robbing the teller. Durham is rising, remember.
