The following story, "Campus credit union robbed; FBI called in to investigate," appeared in the Oct. 23 edition of the New Mexico Daily Lobo, the University of New Mexico's student newspaper:

Saying he was armed with a can of mace, a man robbed the New Mexico Educators Federal Credit Union in the SUB on the morning of Oct. 20, UNM police sources said.

Chris Burroughs of UNM Public Affairs said the robber was described as being 6-feet-2-inches tall, male, between 30 and 35 years of age and weighing between 150 and 200 pounds. The robber wore a gray T-shirt, baseball cap, blue jeans, black-rimmed glasses and a jacket.

According to a police dispatcher, employees of the credit union first called the FBI before hitting the panic alarm, delaying UNM campus police's response. He said UNM Det. Victor Hernandez is investigating why the FBI was called first.
