Front Royal man accused of robbing credit union

By Joe Beck

A Warren County grand jury has indicted a man on charges of robbery and communicating a bomb threat linked to a hold-up of the Front Royal Federal Credit Union on March 29.

Daniel Ivan Jones, 30, of 421 E. Criser Road, Front Royal, remained in jail without bond after the hearing on Monday.

The criminal complaint against Jones states that he walked into the credit union at 113 South Street at 11:12 a.m. and pulled out a piece of paper from an envelope he was carrying.

Jones wrote, "I'm going to blow this b**** up I want the money," the complaint states.

Jones walked up to a teller, identified in the indictment as Krista Beahm, handed her the note and told her, "I want all the money," the complaint states.

The complaint states Beahm gave Jones all the cash she had available, including bait money, which bears serial numbers recorded by banks to help trace robbers. Jones walked out the front door carrying $3,877 with him, but he didn't get far, according to the complaint.

One of several Front Royal officers who arrived at the scene within a few minutes spotted Jones walking down South Street and matched him to a description given by witnesses, the complaint states.

Police arrested Jones and found $3,878 on him, the complaint states. He later admitted entering the bank, placing the note on the counter and taking the money given to him by a teller, according to the complaint.
