They got 'em: Police arrest two people for robbing a Rochester credit union

Two people face felony charges in connection to an armed robbery last month at a local credit union.

The Rochester Police Department announced on Thursday that Andrew Fogan, 19 from Rochester, and Madison Reichert, 21 from Byron, have admitted to their roles in the crime.

The robbery happened on June 19 around 2:30 p.m. at Affinity Plus Credit Union, located off 55th Street in northwest Rochester.

According to police, Fogan walked into the bank and handed the teller a note demanding cash. He told the teller he had a gun, though it's unclear whether he was actually armed. 

Reichert — who went into the bank and made a transaction prior to the robbery — was the getaway driver. Police say the couple was accompanied by a one-year-old child.

Authorities later received a tip from the public that Fogan was involved in the robbery. Upon further investigation, they found security footage from a nearby Walmart showing the couple purchasing the fake mustache, among other items, used in the robbery.

Reichert was arrested Wednesday at her home in Byron. Fogan was already in custody in Goodhue County for leading officers on a chase in a stolen vehicle

Both face felony charges of 1st-degree aggravated robbery and terroristic threats.

According to investigators, they went on a shopping spree in Chicago after the robbery. It's unclear exactly how much money they got away with, but it's estimated to be in the "multiple thousands."
