Police said the credit union was robbed at gunpoint by three men July 8. Officers responded to the area, and about 10 minutes after the robbery occurred found a white Honda Accord suspected as having been used as a getaway vehicle. Authorities said the vehicle was found on Wheatridge Drive; it had been taken by gunpoint in Charlotte July 5.

Members of the Violent Crime Unit continued the investigation of the robbery and identified a white 2000 Ford Explorer as the secondary getaway vehicle, police said.

Police Chief David Addison said with the assistance of ATF and the FBI, investigators conducted multiple interviews and assisted with numerous warrantless searches with North Carolina Probation Officers.
