FIRST REPORT: Homeless man arrested in River Valley Credit Union robberyAs Adkins was walking on Elliott Drive, he went into the River Valley Credit Union, wrote a note and handed it to a teller. The note instructed the teller to give Adkins “all the money” and not to call police.
Adkins left the credit union with an undisclosed amount of cash, and as he ran away from the bank, a dye pack inside the bag exploded. The red dye was still visible on the sidewalk in front of the bank Thursday afternoon as Middletown police officers completed their investigation.
Adkins, formerly of Trenton, was apprehended by Middletown police and the State Highway Patrol in the area of Batsy Drive and Breiel Boulevard, less than a half-mile away from the credit union, police said. Reeve said capturing Adkins was easier because there was no get-away vehicle and he fled on foot.
