Jugging Robbery Trend Targets Bank Customers
Posted on August 4, 2016
In lieu of a recent increase of a crime known as jugging, United Heritage Credit Union would like to remind members to be aware of their surroundings when withdrawing cash.
Jugging occurs when thieves wait for someone to withdraw money from a bank or ATM and then follow that person to rob them immediately or break into the person's vehicle later. To help avoid a jugging incident, it's advised that you always remain vigilant, conceal cash after making a withdrawal and never leave anything of value in your car.
If you do become the victim of jugging, immediately dial 911 to report the incident to police.
