Attempted Bank Robbery Suspect Arrested After Brief Standoff


ANAHEIM, CA – A suspected bank robber was arrested this morning after a nearly one hour standoff. Anaheim Police received a 9-1-1 call from an employee inside the Wells Fargo bank in the 1600 block of N. Raymond Ave. at 9:09 am reporting a possible bank robbery in progress. Employees reported a male entered the bank and demanded money from a teller. Several employees were inside the bank at the time and secured themselves in the rear of the business while watching the suspect over closed circuit video cameras and updating responding officers to the suspect’s location and actions.

APD officers established a perimeter and ordered the suspect to exit the bank. He refused and barricaded himself inside for nearly 45 minutes. At 9:55 am the suspect exited via the front doors and was immediately taken into custody without incident. He has been identified as Pablo Arteaga, a 22 year old resident of Anaheim. Arteaga did not possess a weapon and did not obtain any money from the bank. The motive for the robbery is under investigation.

Arteaga was booked at the Anaheim Detention Facility for commercial burglary and robbery. He is being held on $50,000 bail. His booking photo is shown below:
