Yesterday, December 7 at 2:23 in the afternoon, the Arcata Police Department responded to the Northern Redwood Federal Credit Union at 1270 Giuntoli Lane in Valley West on the report of an armed robbery.

Upon the officers arrival, they learned that a white male adult grinch in his mid to late 40′s entered the credit union and approached a teller.  The suspect brandished a black semi-auto handgun, and demanded money.

The teller complied with orders and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of holiday cash.  The suspect then exited the business out the eastside doors.  Customers and bank employees were unharmed during the blatant mid-day brazen heist.

The suspect was last seen wearing:

  • A dark-colored jacket with a white fur collar
  • Dark colored pants
  • White shoes
  • And a grey shirt

The robber also had on a black beanie cap and sunglasses.  The suspect had a salt and pepper-colored mustache and goatee.  It’s unknown if he had a lump of coal in his pocket for being naughty.

Providing the above picture of the Christmas season killjoy, KIEM-TV news reported:

Police are reporting that they responded to a panic alarm before 3 this afternoon.

They say a light-skinned male adult brandished either a black 9 millimeter or .45 caliber handgun and left the bank eastbound on Guintoli.

First descriptions put him at 6-feet tall, wearing a grey/blue heavy jacket with a white undershirt, possibly with a moustache and gold tooth and black pants.

A picture of the suspect is above.  Clicking on it will enlarge it to full size.

The Arcata Police Department is requesting anyone that may have witnessed the robbery or have information on the identity of the grinch to please called APD at 822-2428.

‘Tis the season for stealing.  Take this recent stupid 19-year old idiot for example.

And this heist was a small slice of shekel chump change compared to the brazen, big, and sophisticated $47 million one in Europe– occurring through customers cell phones.

What’s in your stocking?
