On May 23, 2019, at approximately 9:50 a.m., three armed males committed a takeover-style robbery at the San Diego County Credit Union, located at 1875 S. Centre City Parkway, Escondido, California. After backing the get-away vehicle at the front doors of the credit union, three masked and hooded men entered the bank. Immediately upon entry, the robbers displayed handguns and ordered the employees to the ground. While pointing the handgun at one of the employees, a robber demanded access to the credit union’s vault. A second robber threatened another employee with his weapon to assist with accessing the vault. Once inside the vault, the men emptied one of the bank trash cans and used it to collect cash from the vault. They departed with the trash can full of cash. All three males fled in a vehicle that had been backed up into a parking stall in front of the entrance doors to San Diego County Credit Union prior to the robbery.
