Two bank workers found safe in vault after being held at gunpoint amid armed robbery
Two workers at a University Place bank, who were being held at gunpoint, dashed to the vault and locked the door amid a robbery.
KIRO 7 News talked with a spokesperson for the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department on Thursday at the scene.
Sargent Darren Moss, the department’s public information officer, said they received an alarm from a Washington Federal Bank on Bridgeport Way West on Thursday around 10 a.m.
When deputies arrived at the scene within a minute, they saw a silver Cadillac vehicle speeding out of the bank parking lot, Moss said.
