NY State Police and the FBI have arrested a convicted credit union robber for his alleged participation in two 2019 credit union robberies that netted a combined $438,000. That’s considered a substantial amount for only two robberies.

According to a Buffalo News story, Adrian D. Applewhite was allegedly involved in the robberies of the Clarence Community and Schools Federal Credit Union in November 2019 for approximately $148,000 and the South Towns Federal Credit Union in Lackawanna July 2019 for about $290,000. Both are located near Buffalo.

Ronald L. Morris, who is also charged in the case, is accused of joining Applewhite in the Lackawanna holdup. The complaint against the two defendants makes no mention of whether any of the stolen money was recovered. Read More
