Missing CU Teller Is Suspect In Robbery
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (6/21/13)--A credit union employee who has been missing since May 9 is now a suspect in a robbery that occurred at the credit union on May 7, Milwaukee, Wis.-police said.

Jessica Benson, 22, who had been employed six years at the Milwaukee-based Educators CU, disappeared shortly before her college graduation, and her family had feared she had been a victim of a crime (The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel June 19).

However, police suspect Benson and her boyfriend, Nathaniel Robinson, helped plan the robbery, according to a search warrant obtained Friday. The two are still missing, and their apartment had been cleared out.

The credit union last heard from her on May 11, when she called in sick.

The robbery occurred at the drive-through, while Benson was working. Two Milwaukee men, Kevin Blackburn, 25, and Ricardo Perkins, 31, were apprehended and face robbery charges. The robbery demand note contained terminology often used internally in financial institutions, said police.

Benson allegedly was driving a rental car, and a surveillance camera apparently showed her returning the car on May 13 while being followed by a second car and U-Haul truck.
