Here’s some news courtesy of KPRC-2 that might concern people who bank with the Harris County Federal Credit Union:
More than $100,000 disappeared as it was being transferred from a credit union to an ATM, but thanks to a couple of Good Samaritans, the money was returned within 15 minutes, KPRC Local 2 reported Thursday.
The money was supposed to be delivered to Harris County Federal Credit Union ATMs around the country.
But Harris County sheriff’s deputies said the six boxes of cash fell off the back of a pickup truck when they were being transferred by two off-duty Houston police officers.
The officers realized the money was gone when they arrived at the courthouse annex on Wallisville Road.
Authorities said two men found the cash while driving on Normandy Drive and picked it up. Because the boxes were engraved with Harris County Federal Credit Union and the address, the men returned it to the rightful owners within 15 minutes, officials said.
“The money rolled out,” said Susan Roberts, the credit union president.
“You think that’s a good way to transport money?” KPRC Local 2 reporter Elizabeth Scarborough asked.
“Well, ma’am, it falls out of armored cars, too,” Roberts said. “The money is fully insured.”
Yeah, money falls out of armored cars all of the time. And it’s smart for banking establishments to send out a hundred grand at a time with two guys in a pickup truck. Right!
Is Lee Brown now running this banking establishment also?
