Connecticut credit union manager found wearing suspected bomb vest

MILFORD, Conn. Tue Feb 24, 2015 12:12am EST

(Reuters) - A Connecticut credit union executive was found in a car outside his office on Monday with a bomb-like device strapped to his body following the burglary of his home in what appeared to be an aborted scheme to rob the financial institution, police said.

Matthew Yussman, the chief financial officer and manager of Achieve Financial Credit Union in the town of New Britain, was taken away from the scene, handcuffed as a precaution, in an ambulance after bomb-squad technicians removed the suspected explosive device he was wearing, police said.

New Britain Police Chief James Wardwell said investigators were seeking three suspects in connection with the invasion of Yussman's home in the nearby town of Bristol the night before and evidence pointing to a plan to steal money from his credit union.

No one was injured in the incident, he added.

1. Didn't this asshole know he had to work for Goldman, Citi or


an important financial institution before he could steal? A credit union isn't too big to fail.
