ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) – St. Louis County Police recovered some of the money from the Lemay credit union robbery on Wednesday, but the search for the suspect continues.

The money was found around noon, nearly two hours after the hold-up.
Police did stop a couple of vehicles matching the getaway car’s description, a yellow Chevy, but came up empty.
The suspect did not display a weapon during the robbery, but he appeared to be on a cell phone while talking to the teller.
The suspect is described as a white male, roughly 30-years-old, with a goatee and police say he was wearing a black cap. Police say he is believed to be the only suspect.
Anyone with information should contact St. Louis County Police or Crimestoppers.
