FM police investigate armed robbery at credit union

Flower Mound police are investigating an aggravated robbery of a Flower Mound credit union early Saturday morning.

Qualtrust Credit Union, located at 2501 Flower Mound Road east of FM 2499, was robbed at gunpoint by two women, who then forced employees into the bank safe and locked it, according to a police report.

A customer walked into the bank and did not see any employees inside when he heard noises coming from the safety deposit box safe, police said. The male customer talked to employees locked inside. They told him the bank had been robbed and asked him to call police, who were notified at 8:17 a.m.

Police arrived on the scene and were able to open the safe after contacting additional Qualtrust employees, according to the report. No injuries were reported.

An initial investigation indicated two armed females overpowered the employees and removed an undisclosed amount of money, locked the two employees inside the safe and fled the from the credit union, according to the report.

Both the police department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are continuing the investigation.

Captain Richard Brooks said the aggravated robbery was not believed to be connected with any other bank robberies. In July, the Dallas FBI and other area police departments had connected what they believed to be a string of armed robberies at banks and credit unions in the last year.

The suspect descriptions in those incidents were different from the descriptions of suspects in the Saturday incident.

One of the two suspects in the Saturday incident was described as a woman with a thin build, approximately 5 feet, 6 inches in height, with black hair, wearing all black clothing, a hat and sunglasses and armed with a black semi-automatic handgun.

The second suspect was described as a female, thin build, approximately the same height with dark skin, black hair, wearing pink and white clothing, a hat and sunglasses and armed with a knife.

Anyone with any information about the incident is encouraged to notify the Flower Mound Police Department by either calling 972-539-0525 or the Anonymous Crime Tip Line at 972-874-3307. Individuals can also contact the FBI at 972-559-5000.
