CAMBRIA, Calif. -

A 70-year-old man suspected of an armed bank robbery of the Rabobank in Cambria was arrested and taken into custody.

Around 9 a.m. Wednesday on the 4700 block of Egret Lane, Bruce Franklin Valentine of Paso Robles was arrested and taken to San Luis Obispo County Jail.

Valentine became a suspect when detectives followed up on leads gained during the initial investigation of the robbery.

It was two weeks ago when a man wearing dark clothing and a clear face mask pulled off the Rabobank in Cambria, Thursday Nov. 7 on Main Street.

Employees said no shots were fired and the man got the cash he wanted and took off. The case is still under investigation.
