Police are investigating an armed robbery Tuesday afternoon at a Ferguson Township credit union.
Chief Chris Albright says the suspect entered the SPE Federal Credit Union off Science Park Road around 4:00PM and demanded money. He was given cash and fled toward Circleville Road on Foot. A green package was left on the counter by the suspect, who told employees it could be designated from two miles away. The bomb squad was called into investigate. Police say a bomb threat was also phoned into the North Atherton Walmart shortly before the robbery, forcing the evacuation of the store.
Employees told police the suspect was wearing a purple dress, a mask and an ivory hood… he fled the scene on foot toward Circleville Road.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Ferguson Township at 237- 1172 Police or Centre County 911.
