Sheriff: California man arrested for robbing bank in Cascade


The Valley County Sheriff's Office says they have arrested a 47-year-old California man after he robbed a bank in Cascade Monday afternoon.

Deputies say the bank's silent alarm notified them of the robbery at the Umpqua Bank at 1:01 South Main Street around 2:30 p.m.

Witnesses told them that a man wearing a bright orange sweatshirt and gray sweatpants, carrying a bag with a beach towel sticking out had entered the bank and demanded money.

When deputies arrived at the bank, they say they saw the suspect running from the area and were able to take him into custody.

Deputies say Brent Gutierrez, of Agoura Hills, California, was arrested and charged with robbery, then booked into the Valley County Jail.

The sheriff's office says Gutierrez was carrying a bag with cash, an orange hoody, and a beach towel when they caught him.
