FBI reports on CU bank crimes
WASHINGTON (8/6/10)--A total of 94 robberies and four burglaries were recorded at credit unions during the first quarter of this year, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has reported. In its quarterly compilation of financial institution crime reports, the FBI noted that a total of 1,160 robberies, 21 burglaries, and two larcenies occurred at all reporting financial institutions. Just over $9 million in funds were taken, and nearly $2 million of those funds were eventually recovered during this time period. The majority of the crimes were committed at branch offices in commercial areas of metropolitan cities. The FBI also noted that one bank extortion violation occurred at a credit union over this time period, but none of the total of three extortion attempts were successful.
