Robbery suspect nabbed with bomb in getaway car
WASHOUGAL, Wash. (3/23/09)--A man who allegedly robbed a credit union in Washougal, Wash., was arrested Wednesday after he told police he had a bomb inside of his car. Shawn Bromley allegedly stole money from a branch of Lacamas CU, Camas, Wash., Wednesday. Police chased him after the robbery until Bromley crashed his car. After the crash, he told police that he had a bomb inside of his car--which the Federal Bureau Investigation later confirmed (KPTV.com March 19). The bomb was safely removed from the vehicle, and Bromley was taken into custody. Police have not yet disclosed the amount of money taken from the credit union, or whether Bromley was injured during the crash.
