Posted December 9, 2011

— Raleigh police are looking for a man in connection with a robbery that happened Thursday afternoon at a State Employees' Credit Union branch. 

Authorities say a man entered the branch, located at 4050 Poole Road, at about 5:15 Thursday and passed a robbery note to a teller. After the teller complied with the note's demands, the man fled the building. 

Police say the man is described as a thin white male in his 20s who stands about 6 feet tall. He was reportedly wearing a light-colored coat and may have facial hair. 

Anyone who may have witnessed the crime or who has other information about this case is asked to call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357.

    They can be found in abundance at the location of the shooting I was talking about where WRAL neglected to give a good description of the perp. All they gave was height and what he was wearing, Which could have been anyone on the planet! I firmly believe they left out skin color on purpose. But thanks for cherry picking my post to make some sort of weak point on yours.

    Also slantedeyes, where are the trailer parks in and around se Raleigh and the name of the parks? And what ethnicity is the majority in these trailer parks? And are you stating facts or just saying things you think is true? Because I have lived in this part of Raleigh for 25 years and I have no idea what you are talking about.

    There are no trailer parks in SE Raleigh. I'm sorry slantedeyes lol, I can't read run on sentences. Look at your grammar before you try to sound like you know what you are saying.

    I love to hear these dumb comments, maybe one day people will realize that the human condition is way deeper than the color of someone's skin, and maybe it makes these type people feel better about them selves when making these type of generalizations,it must some how makes them believe that they are on a planet all their own the truth is if you were lying in your death bed needing a blood transfusion would you refuse one because the donors was of a different ethnicity, of course not so who exactly are you fooling every one else, or yourself with these delusions of grandure, plus there are plenty of trailer parks in se raleigh, lol

    Thats odd isnt it. Im white. I lived in Park Glen condos as a child right off Raliegh Blvd. Then I moved right by Larry's supermarket. My granmother was white and lived in Halifax court before it was demolished. Im now a working, taxpaying, homeowning, citizen. I love to come here and read the generalizations they get from their TV's. So clueless. I went to Powell, Carnage, and Enloe. Trust me all ages, races, religions do dumb things.

    try ignoring these people who make dumb comments. They will keep it up as long as it bothers you. I've seen and known both black and white dumb people in that area.
