* GREENSBORO, N.C. (4/23/10)--Two State Employees’ CU (SECU) members have received the first-ever award from the North Carolina Credit Union League’s Robbery Reward Fund. The reward fund was created several years ago to help law enforcement agencies in the area. Up to $5,000 may be awarded to anyone who helps law enforcement arrest a robber. The members, who wish to remain anonymous, helped SECU nab a robber last September. The robbery took place at a SECU branch in Mint Hill, N.C., Sept. 15. The members, who were in the parking lot next door, followed a man who had come into the credit union and demanded money from a teller. The man had covered his license plate with paper to avoid being tracked, but pulled off to the side of the road to uncover his plate after being followed by the members for several miles. The members called 911 and gave the information to police. The man, Jeremy Scott Lemmond, was found at his home a few hours later. Lemmond pleaded guilty to armed robbery in January. SECU does not encourage people to pursue robbers, but the members “were in the right place at the right time,” said SECU Security Officer Jonathan Mallaber ... * DUBLIN, Ohio (4/23/10)--The 2010 Ohio Credit Unions: Marching Miles for Miracle Kids raised $110,000--surpassing its goal, according to the Ohio Credit Union League (eLumination newsletter April 21).
