Police are investigating a robbery at a credit union in Unity that took place Friday afternoon, July 29, and as of Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 2, no arrest has been made in connection with the case.

Deputies and detectives with the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office, along with other law enforcement officials, remained on scene at the Down East Credit Union on School Street Friday evening.

A suspect, who made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, remains at large, according to Sheriff Scott Story.

Story said that at 2:33 p.m., a white male with a beard entered the credit union and pushed a bag across the counter to a teller. The man asked the teller to fill the bag and after the money was put in, the suspect fled the building on foot.

Story said no weapons were brandished and the suspect made no threats of violence during the robbery. At the time, there were two employees and a customer inside the credit union.

In addition to the beard, Story described the suspect as wearing sunglasses and a white hooded sweatshirt with the word “Montana” both across the chest and on the left sleeve and the number “89” printed on the front. The suspect was also wearing blue jeans and white footwear, according to police, who described him as approximately 5-feet, 6-inches tall, and 140 pounds.

When asked if there was any indication the suspect may have later got into a vehicle after fleeing the building on foot, Story said there was some indication he may have got into a vehicle, but police do not know for sure, at this time.

Leading the investigation is Detective Matt Curtis from the Sheriff’s Office. Assisting at the scene is Detective Jason Bosco and four patrol deputies, along with Maine State Police Trooper Shawn Porter and his K9, Tex, as well as Trooper Don Webber. The Maine Computer Crimes Task Force and the FBI are also involved in the investigation.

Story said officers are reviewing the credit union’s surveillance video. Anyone with information about the suspect, or who might have seen anything around the time of the robbery, is asked to call Waldo County Dispatch at 338-2040.
