Bank Robbery Leads to One Arrest

On Tuesday, Aug. 6, the Glendale Police Dept. arrested 28-year-old Pablo Miguel Lopez of Sylmar for robbery.

On Tuesday at 3:55 p.m., Glendale officers responded to the Bank of America located at 3812 San Fernando Road in the City of Glendale regarding a robbery in progress. A male, later identified as Lopez, entered the bank carrying a bag and approached a bank teller. Lopez presented a demand note that indicated he wanted money and he was in possession of a bomb and a gun.

The Glendale Police Dept. was notified and quickly surrounded the bank. Lopez exited the bank without the bag or money and he was taken into custody without incident.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. Bomb Squad responded and rendered the bag safe. The bag did not contain a bomb or weapons.

Lopez is currently on parole for robbery.

The case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration.

Anyone with information regarding this case is requested to contact the Glendale Police Dept. at (818) 548-4911.
