Police seek man who held up Edmonds credit union

EDMONDS — The Alaska Credit Union inside the Safeway store on Highway 99 in Edmonds was robbed Sunday by a man who indicated he had a gun, according to Edmonds police.

The man walked into the credit union branch in the store at 23632 Highway 99 at 1:22 p.m. today, according to police. He handed the teller a note, indicating he had a gun and to hand over all the money.
