Two men arrested, suspected of five bank robberies

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Police have arrested two men who may be responsible for five bank robberies in the San Diego county area.

The latest robbery happened just after 1 p.m. Tuesday at a Wells Fargo Bank in Scripps Ranch. One of the men threatened the teller with a gun. After he received the money, he got into a car driven by the other man. A short time later, a clerk at a Quality Inn on Kearny Mesa Road saw the men changing the license plate on the car and called police.

Police say they put the parking lot under surveillance and saw the men get into a cab. Officers pulled the cab over and arrested the suspects a short time later.

Authorities believe the men have robbed at least two banks in Poway and three in Scripps Ranch over the last five weeks.
