Local residents are expressing a mix of emotions following the second robbery of GenFed Financial Credit Union in less than two months.
On Thursday, four armed bandits robbed the financial institution and left the scene with an undisclosed amount of money. The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI continue to investigate the case.
According to the Crescent News, Sheriff Jason Landers believes that two of the four were involved in an earlier robbery at GenFed on Oct. 22.
Patricia Ross, Antwerp Local Schools superintendent: “Our building is always locked, but we take extra precautions. We remind students not to open (outside) doors, which they aren’t supposed to do anyway. Otherwise it was business as usual. The first one was more unnerving than this one. We knew a bit more about what to do (this time).”
