WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (7/18/08)--Men suspected of robbing a West Valley City branch of Salt Lake City-based Premier Services CU were arrested by police Tuesday after a seven-hour standoff at a home in the area, according to media reports.
Two men, one carrying a handgun, entered Premier Services CU Tuesday afternoon at 2:45 p.m. and ordered the branch's three employees to the floor. They emptied the cash register and left, Dennis Murray, Premier Services CU CEO, told News Now.
No employees were injured during the robbery, but they were shaken, Murray said.
Murray confirmed that the credit union's employees saw two men, but noted that a witness outside of the credit union said she saw a third individual in a car that the robbers used to escape. He later learned from media reports that police arrested six individuals at a standoff, he said.
John Bizzle, 20, Corey Morrison, 18, and George Dumas, 58, were arrested for the Premier Services CU robbery and are being held in a local jail, according to the Salt Lake Tribune (July 16).
Three others, whose names have not yet been released, also were arrested at the standoff. The robbery at Premier Services CU took place about one hour before the standoff, West Valley Police Capt. Steve Sandquist told the Tribune.
The credit union has not yet stated the amount of money stolen in the incident.
