Davenport police make arrest in Ascentra Credit Union robbery
DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - A Davenport man was arrested Wednesday after police say he robbed a Davenport credit union.
Arnordo Corderrel Turner, 33, is charged with second-degree robbery, a Class C felony punishable by 10 years in prison. He is expected to appear in Scott County Court Thursday morning via video arraignment.
Officers responded at 3:49 p.m. Wednesday to Ascentra Credit Union, 1800 Brady Street.
According to an arrest affidavit, Turner approached a teller and passed over a note that read, “This is a bank robbery, put all the money on the counter.” According to the affidavit, the teller, who was in fear of their safety, gave Turner $1,155 in assorted bills.
Preliminary information indicated a man, later identified as Turner, went into the business and demanded money from an employee. He then left after taking an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.
An off-duty officer was in the area at the robbery and directed on-duty officers to a possible suspect leaving, police said.
Turner was arrested without incident. According to the affidavit, he was still in possession of the money from the credit union.
In a media release, Ascentra said everyone who was in the building is safe, and the situation was “effectively handled.”
The credit union said the branch would close for the remainder of Wednesday and resume normal hours on Thursday. They advised members to use other branches in the meantime.
Davenport police said this is still an active investigation.
