Stockton Police Continue Search For Bank Robbery Suspect


Stockton Police have made another arrest in the July bank robbery and shooting that killed three people. Capital Public Radio's Rich Ibarra reports there's an another reward too.

Stockton Police and federal ATF agents say an additional reward of $5,000 is being offered for information on how the three gunmen obtained the AK-47 used in the Bank of the West robbery.

ATF Special Agent-in-Charge Graham Barlow says the gun was illegally manufactured.

"There's no serial number on it and as a result we have no ability to track that firearm down using our normal processes."

Two robbers and a hostage were killed in a shootout with police after a car chase. Police say the hostage, Misty Holt-Singh, was killed by police bullets, but that she was being used as a shield by one of the suspects.

Stockton Police Chief Eric Jones says a 16-year-old gang member was arrested as an accessory for moving the car that was used to drop off the gunmen.

And he says police are looking for another gang member in connection with the robbery.  

"Pablo Ruvalcaba is a 21-year-old man wanted for questioning as a person of interest as possibly being the driver who dropped off the three gunmen at the Bank of the West on July 16th."

A $50,000 reward is being offered for information on the driver.
