**(Alert) Ellicott police and other agencies investigating hold-up at Greater Chautauqua Federal Credit Union...
Several local police agencies are investigating a reported hold-up at the Greater Chautauqua Federal Credit Union on East Main Street in Falconer this morning.  Ellicott Police Chief Bill Ohmneiss says the call came in sometime before 10 AM that a man had entered the credit union... and, demanded money from one of the employees.  At this point... Ohnmeiss says the suspect did not brandish a weapon.  He says the man is described as being a white male, about 5'10" tall, and wearing a blue hat with a Carhart jacket, and blue jeans.  Ohmneiss adds the suspect had apparently used a marker to draw a fake beard and mustache on his face.  He says the suspect did get a "small amount" of money before fleeing the credit union on foot.  He says the male was last seen heading east along East Main Street.  Ohmneiss says they're getting a lot of help with the investigation by the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office, State Police and Jamestown Police.  Ohmneiss adds that... as a pre-caution... the Falconer Central Schools have been locked-down because of the hold-up.  If you have any information on the robbery... contact Ellicott Police at 665-7083.
