Billings Credit Union Robber Found
Billings Police have made an arrest in connection with the robbery at Valley Federal Credit Union Wednesday. 39-year-old David Lee Brown Jr. has been charged with felony robbery with weapons enhancement and felony tampering with evidence. Billings police responded to the Valley Federal Credit Union just after 2:30 Wednesday afternoon for a report of a robbery.
Brown reportedly entered the credit union, showed a gun, and told an employee to fill the bag and (quote) no bait. The employee gave Brown over $2,700 in cash. Police tracked Brown to his residence and found a $20 bill in his car matching a “bait bill” serial number provided by the credit union.
Brown admitted to law enforcement he owed money for drugs. Police located a black sweatshirt and camouflage face mask in Brown’s trash. Brown’s wife was in the car. She wasn’t sure, but believed he had just robbed the bank.
