Sutherlin credit union robbed

SUTHERLIN, Ore. -- Police are looking for suspects in the robbery of the First Community Credit Union on Central Avenue. Police say a man walked in and demanded cash just before 4:30 pm on Monday.

Kirk Sanfilippo, Chief of Sutherlin Police, told KPIC News at the scene that the suspect is described as white male, about 5'10" to 6 feet in height, in his 50s.

The man was reported to be unshaven, slender, wearing dark colored hoodie that has reflective stripe on the back.

Witnesses also describe the suspect wearing tan "high water" pants.

Authorities say the suspect jumped into a dark blue, mid-90's 4-door sedan that has some kind of taillight covers on the back.

Police say a woman was driving the car, and she is described as blonde and wearing a Tie-Dye shirt.

Authorities say the male suspect ran westbound across Waite Street, down the alley and got into the car, which was last seen westbound on Central Avenue traveling towards Interstate 5.

According to the Roseburg Police Department, one of their K-9 dogs was used to track a person of interest in the robbery at about 10:40 pm on Umpqua Street in Roseburg.

Police say they were in the area looking for a vehicle of interest when two people took off running.  After a short foot chase, one of the people were caught, and the other kept going.

K-9 Iago tracked the person to a dumpster, where police found them hiding inside.

Both people were turned in to the Sutherlin Police Department, but it is not known if the two were involved in the robbery.

This is a developing story, and will be updated as information comes in.
