A suspect fleeing a robbery at Weyerhaeuser CU was caught a short while later after one witness recognized him as his barber. The witness, a credit union member, was standing in the parking lot with his two sons when he saw the suspect enter the credit union, then hurry out in a suspicious manner, according to Longview Police Det. Doug Kazenski. When the witness saw police cars arrive moments later he told police he recognized the suspect. "That's Mike, who used to cut his hair," Kakenski told The Credit Union Journal. Police went to the barbershop to track down the suspect, who tried to flee when they arrived at his home, but was captured after a short chase. The suspect, identified as Michael Aberle, 45, was arrested with some of the stolen loot on him. The suspect did not show a weapon during the robbery.
