BENICIA, Calif. - Two armed men in ski masks slunk away from an attempted heist empty-handed after learning they had picked a cashless credit union, authorities said.
The unidentified men rushed into the First Pacific Credit Union in Benicia around noon Thursday with semiautomatic handguns drawn, Benicia police said.
But after ordering employees to lie down and hand over money, the suspects were told there was no cash to be had, police said.
The men were trying to rob a "cashless credit union" where the money is deposited into a vault inaccessible to most employees, said Benicia police Capt. Steve Mortensen.
The men fled the scene, and no one was injured. Police were looking into whether the men have attempted other heists around Benicia, about 35 miles northeast of San Francisco.
"I would say that apparently they weren't really prepared," Mortensen said.
