SECU tellers aid kidnap victim suspect caught
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (1/7/08)--State Employees CU tellers helped police rescue a woman who said she was kidnapped by a man who robbed her. The woman escaped and told tellers she was robbed and then kidnapped by a man who forced her to go inside the credit union to get money (Charlotte Observer Jan. 4). Credit union staff called the police, who confronted the man as he waited in the woman’s car in the credit union parking lot. The suspect, James Smith, 51, would not surrender to police, so they shocked him with a Taser. He was later taken into custody and charged with first-degree kidnapping (News14.com Jan. 4). The woman was not injured during the kidnapping, which lasted 30 hours. State Employees CU, based in Raleigh, has $14.9 billion in assets.
