Suspects in Arbuckle bank robbery still at large

Colusa County Sheriff’s officials are still looking for two men they say robbed the Umpqua Bank in Arbuckle at gunpoint on Friday.

Authorities say the men were dressed in hoodies, wore masks on their faces, and were armed with handguns when the entered the bank around 4:39 PM.

The suspects took an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing southbound in a tan Toyota pickup that had been reported stolen, according to Sgt. Mathew Purcell.

Officials said a Colusa County Deputy pursued the pickup into Yolo County where one of the suspects – the passenger – jumped from the vehicle after it came to a stop and fled on foot. The other continued driving southbound until he abandoned the vehicle in an orchard south of County Road 2, west of County Road 88, near Dunnigan, and also fled on foot.

Colusa County Sheriff’s deputies, detectives, and task force agents, along with personnel from the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office, California Highway Patrol, and the Williams and Woodland police departments set a perimeter around the area, but did not locate either of the two men.

The CHP’s air unit and K9 were also utilized in the search.

One man has been described as heavy set with a light complexion. The other, with a dark complexion, is possibly Hispanic or African American.

The two may still be armed, officials said.

The investigation is ongoing, and the Sheriff’s Office is following active leads. The FBI is assisting in the investigation, Purcell said.

If anyone has any information about the incident, they are asked to call Colusa County Sheriff Sgt. Jose Ruiz or Det. Chris Doble at (530) 458-0200.
