The case involving a Casper man accused of burglarizing a Federal Credit Union is moving to district court.

Twenty year old Kevin Walsh has waived his preliminary hearing in a case where is facing one charge of burglary and one charge of grand larceny.

Investigators with the Casper Police Department and the FBI say in middle June, there was a report of about $48,000 missing from the Family First Federal Credit Union, just east of downtown Casper.

Upon reviewing security camera footage, investigators saw during the overnight hours of the burglary, someone had turned several cameras away, and then turned them back to their original position a short time later.

Walsh eventually became a suspect when investigators learned he had paid $20,000 for a car, and learned he had been in the FCU in the past, doing odd jobs, because he knew one of the employees.

When interviewed he confessed to doing the deed, saying his family needed the money, and no one else helped him with the burglary.

He outlined his strategy, saying he swiped a key, and knew the manufacturer’s pre-set code for the vault lock, because he worked with similar devices from the same manufacturer at his job.

It turns out the FCU never changed the code to the vault when they got it, more than one decade ago and Walsh opened it on the first try.

Investigators were able to recover the money, minus what had been spent.

Walsh is being held on $10,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face up to 10 years in prison on each charge if convicted.
