Details Released On Crane Credit Union Robbery In Washington

Last updated on Thursday, August 16, 2012

(WASHINGTON) - Alleged bank robber, 23-year-old Dustin Green was arrested by Worthington police Monday night in Greene County.

According to a press release Green, originally from Vincennes, was caught in Worthington by police who were on the lookout for a white 2000 Pontiac Grand Am that Green allegedly stole.

At a little before 9 a.m. Monday, Green allegedly went into the Crane Federal Credit Union, on State Street in Washington and presented a note to a teller demanding money.

He then left with an undisclosed amount of cash and ran to the neighboring Sav-A-Lot where he disappeared. In the process, Green lost a pair of flip-flops at the bank. Green then sped off in the Grand Am back to a Meridian Street apartment.

Police would not say if he had a gun or not.

No one was harmed in the robbery. Police would not confirm how much money was taken from the bank.

At 9:15 a.m., dispatchers received a 911 call there reporting an argument, but police were told to disregard the call. It was after this altercation that Green left with the owner of the vehicle, Caron Hulsey's daughter.

An area-wide manhunt was launched to find Green, with officers looking for what was believed to be at first a white SUV. It was later changed to the white Pontiac Grand Am following the Hulsey connection to Green.

Many local law enforcement agencies assisted in the investigation, including: the Daviess County Sheriff's Department, Worthington police, Linton police, Jasonville police, Vincennes police, Loogootee police and sheriff's departments from Knox, Greene and Martin counties.

The Indiana State Police and the FBI also assisted in the investigation.

Green was found in Worthington and arrested. He is being held at the Daviess County Security Center on a $7,500 bond.
