Type of Incident: Suspects Sought in Bank Robberies

Date of incident: March 30th, 2017

Location of incident: Southern Oregon Area

On March 20th, 2017, Medford Police investigated a bank robbery at Bank
of the Cascades, 3100 Crater Lake Hwy. During that investigation,
detectives noticed similarities to other bank robberies in Southern Oregon
and began working closely with other agencies as well as the F.B.I. During
the ensuing investigation, detectives developed two suspects in the bank
robbery spree.

On March 30th, 2017, Ashland Police investigated a bank robbery in their
city which also matched the several other cases being investigating.

On March 30th, 2017 at about 10:00 p.m., detectives from Medford and
Ashland executed a search warrant on the suspects’ residence in the
7600 block of Hwy 227, Trail, Oregon. Detectives also executed a search
warrant on their vehicle which was seized after a traffic stop by Eagle
Point Police in White City earlier that same day.

The search warrants revealed evidence linking them to the bank robbery
spree. However, the suspects were not located. Today, felony warrants
will be entered for both suspects who are believed to be in the listed
vehicle. Their where-a-bouts are unknown and they are well aware law
enforcement is looking for them and may try to evade capture. Anyone
with information is asked to contact Medford Police at 541-770-4783, and
if they are on view, please call 911 immediately.
