Robbery suspect said to hit same Sacramento bank twice

Sacramento police have arrested a man suspected of twice holding up the same downtown bank.

Sacramento police said that on Wednesday at about 4 p.m. Michael Johnson, 52, entered the River City Bank at 900 K Street and demanded cash.

After money was handed over, Johnson left the bank, according to police, and got into a taxi. Eventually, police learned, the robber was dropped off at Arden Fair Mall.

Police arrested Johnson while he was walking along the rear parking lot of the mall. He is suspected of robbing the same bank on Jan. 25.

Police said that in addition to the two Sacramento robberies, he is a suspect in three other bank robberies, two in San Francisco and one in South Lake Tahoe.
