Ladera bank robbery suspect arrested; photo released

 

A suspect in the April 4 robbery of the Chase Bank in Ladera was arrested Wednesday in Santa Barbara, Lt. Ray Lunny of the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office said.

Detectives from the San Mateo and Santa Clara county sheriff's offices, in coordination with their counterparts in Santa Barbara County, made the arrest.

In custody on robbery charges is Raymond Donald Davenport, 51, a transient who is also a suspect in a Santa Barbara bank robbery, Lt. Lunny said.

"Our guys went down there and did a great job," Lt. Lunny told the Almanac.

The Chase Bank in the Country Shopper mall in Ladera was robbed at about 9:15 a.m. on April 4. The suspect reportedly told the bank teller that he was armed and then fled with an undetermined amount of cash.

Deputies took Mr. Davenport into custody at about 4 p.m. at a Santa Barbara residence, Lt. Lunny said.
