ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Local, state and federal law enforcement are scheduled to hold a news conference Wednesday morning about the arrest in the deadly 2003 robbery of the Xerox Federal Credit Union in Webster.

The US attorney’s office says Richard Leon Wilbern is charged with the robbery and murder. Webster town leaders said Wilbern was either an employee of Xerox or the federal credit union. Court documents show a Richard Wilbern filed a federal lawsuit against Xerox in the year 2000. It was dismissed in 2005.

For years, investigators searched for the man who they say walked into the credit union at the Xerox complex in Webster dressed as an FBI agent. Raymond Batzel, 51, was shot and killed during the robbery.

A second person, Joseph Doud, was also shot.

In March, the FBI announced the suspect was believed connected to the Buffalo or Niagara Falls area, and offered up a $50,000 reward and newly-enhanced surveillance photos.
