Suspect arrested in recent Sacramento-area credit union robberies

A man sought in connection with three Sacramento-area bank robberies was arrested Wednesday by Sacramento Police Department SWAT officers.

During an investigation by Sacramento and Elk Grove police and the FBI, a tip from the community led to identification of the suspect as 52-year-old Glenn Reid, according to a Sacramento police news release. He was taken into custody in the 6400 block of Gloria Drive.

He is suspected of robberies at three area locations of Schools Financial Credit Union:

▪ About 4:41 p.m. March 20, a man entered the Schools Financial Credit Union at 8725 Folsom Blvd., demanded money, displayed what was believed to be a handgun, then left on foot after receiving cash.

▪ About 5:07 p.m. May 8, the same man entered the Schools Financial Credit Union at 1631 Claudia Drive, displayed a handgun and demanded money.

▪ The third robbery occurred about 3:45 p.m. June 30 at the Schools Financial Credit Union at 8255 Laguna Blvd. in Elk Grove. The robber approached a teller, demanded money and brandished a handgun, then left with an undisclosed amount of money, police said.

No one was injured in the robberies.

Reid was booked into Sacramento County jail on suspicion of robbery.
