Credit union head teller confesses to theft via text message

Police continue search for Jorge Navarro who allegedly stole more than $100,000 from a credit union and may have fled to Mexico.

In the early morning hours of Monday, Sept. 10, then head teller for the $188 million URW Community Federal Credit Union in Danville, Va., sent a text to his supervisor.

His text read that he stole money from two branches and that he was sorry.

Since then, police have been searching for Jorge Omar Navarro Jr., 27, who worked at the credit union for 10 years.

Search warrants filed in Danville Circuit Court accuse Navarro of allegedly stealing more than $100,000 and replacing it with so-called Hollywood prop money, the Danville Register newspaper reported earlier this week.

“He did this on Friday (Sept. 7) and Saturday (Sept. 8),” Cheryl Doss, president/CEO of URW Community FCU, said when contacted by CU Times. “He texted his supervisor in the early hours of the morning on Monday, prior to any branch opening, and told her what he had done and that he was sorry.”
