Two Suspects Arrested in Credit Union Robbery

The SDC Employees Credit Union in Kankakee was robbed early Monday.  Police are reporting two Kankakee men were arrested in connection with the armed robbery, shortly after the incident took place during the noon hour.

32-year-old Brandon Thomas and 28-year-old Deandre Washington are in custody. Police had the suspects in custody in short order after the alleged armed robbers were tracked to a home on S. Washington Ave. The home was less than two blocks from the Credit Union at 296 W. Jeffery Street.

More than a dozen police vehicles surrounded the home a half hour after the noon robbery. At least one of the men was armed with a handgun.
