SAUGUS – Four people suspected of robbing a Saugus bank at gunpoint Wednesday were arrested a short time later while fleeing south on Interstate5, sheriff’s officials said. The suspects – three men, 18, 19 and 32, and a 17-year-old boy – were booked at the Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s station on suspicion of robbery and were to be questioned by the FBI, sheriff’s Lt. Brenda Cambra said. Bail was set at $100,000 for each. Three robbers entered the Bank of America at Bouquet Canyon Road and Seco Canyon Road shortly before noon. One held a gun on customers as two others went behind the counters and took thousands of dollars, then fled in a light-blue Toyota Cressida, according to a sheriff’s report and a police radio broadcast. That car, identified by witnesses down to the license plate, was found abandoned behind a Saugus apartment complex near the bank, Cambra said. Inside the vehicle, deputies found some of the cash taken, covered with red dye from a booby-trapped pack. last_img
