Police have charged a suspect with one count of robbery that occurred at the Landmark Credit Union in West Milwaukee on Nov. 13. About $2,800 was taken in the incident, according to reports. The man, 55, allegedly threatened a bank teller with a black bag that he implied contained a bomb. The female teller reported that he asked for all her larger bills and told her it was not a joke. He also told her not to include any dye packs with the bills.
Following the money being taken and the suspect fleeing the scene, the Bomb Squad was alerted, and they determined that, while the contents of the bag looked similar to an explosive device, they were not actually a bomb. The bag's contents were determined to be basic household items including an LED flashlight and electrical tape.
