Mira Mesa bank robbery suspect arrested

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man allegedly used a demand note saying he had a bomb to rob a Mira Mesa credit union Friday before being arrested a short time later during a traffic stop.

The holdup at the Navy Federal office in the 10800 block of Black Mountain Road was reported about 10:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.

The bandit fled with an undisclosed amount of money in a gray SUV, SDPD Sgt. Ray Battrick said.

With help from personnel aboard a police helicopter, patrol officers caught up with the suspect's vehicle and pulled it over on Mira Mesa Boulevard, near Camino Ruiz. The driver, 42-year-old Steven Sconberg, was arrested on suspicion of robbery, the sergeant said.

"Well, we had the bag inside the car and we recovered the bag. We actually asked the suspect whether or not there was a bomb inside the car and he said that there wasn't. There was just a false note," SDPD Lt. Eric Hays said.
