He got in, got the cash, and got out in 30 seconds. Now police are hoping you can help them catch him.

An armed bandit brandishing a black semi-automatic handgun robbed the Financial Trust Federal Credit Union on Seneca Street in West Seneca around 9:30 a.m. on March 17.

He walked in and walked up to the counter. He pulled out a gun as a woman was talking to the clerk. You see him walk in one direction with the gun held out then back to the clerk, where he gets the cash and then leaves.

The man was wearing a gray motorcycle helmet, making it impossible to see his face. He escaped on foot through Mill Road Park directly behind the Credit Union.

A reward of $5,000 is being offered for information leading to his arrest.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the West Seneca Police Detective Bureau at 716-674-3154 or the confidential Tip Line at 716-675-8423.
