Attempted robbery at Fillmore bank leads to 1 arrest

A 19-year-old man was arrested in connection with a May 28 attempted robbery of a Fillmore Wells Fargo bank.

The Fillmore man walked into the bank in 600 block of Ventura Street at 12:30 p.m. and handed a note to a teller demanding money, according to a Ventura County Sheriff’s Office news release. The city of Fillmore contracts with the sheriff’s office for police services.

After speaking with the teller briefly, the man walked out of the bank, according to the release.

The man did not demand a set amount of money, and he did not get any funds from the bank, said Det. Nicole Grover in an email on Monday. There was no argument, and the teller alerted her supervisor immediately, she said.

The incident lasted about three minutes, ending when the man left the bank without cash, she said.

Investigators from Fillmore and the sheriff’s major crimes unit spent several days looking into the attempted robbery.

On Friday, Fillmore deputies contacted a man matching the suspect’s description and found evidence linking him to the incident. Deputies also executed a search warrant at the man’s home in the 200 block of Village Square in Fillmore and found more evidence.

The man was arrested Friday on suspicion of two counts of misdemeanor petty theft and felonies for attempted robbery and second-degree robbery, according to jail records. He is currently being held at Todd Road Jail located west of Santa Paula.

His bail amount is $102,500, and he has a scheduled 1:30 p.m.Tuesday court appearance at Ventura County Superior Court.
