Huntington police arrested a man who they said was attempting to rob the First Priority Federal Credit Union.
Andred Clinton Davis, 32, of Detroit was charged with first-degree attempted armed robbery and fleeing, according to news release from the Huntington Police Department.
A criminal complaint said the suspect approached the credit union with his face covered and wearing a hoodie and sun glasses. He also was wearing rubber gloves and was armed with a replica firearm. The complaint said the suspect parked his vehicle two blocks away, and a false 911 call was made to divert officers to a different location.
Police had received a tip about a possible bank robbery. The suspect entered the credit union on Virginia Avenue, and he was chased on foot to Seventh Avenue West, the release said. He was captured by officers, a SWAT team and federal agents a short distance from the credit union.
The investigation was coordinated between the Hurricane Police Department, FBI, Huntington Police Department and members of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department.
