Security Guard Shot In Armored Car Robbery Outside Windsor Bank, 2 Arrests

CALISTOGA (CBS SF) -- Police in Calistoga have arrested a second suspect involved in robbing an armored car and shooting a guard in Windsor Tuesday, sheriff's officials said.

One suspect was in custody while the other remained at large.

After the second arrest, Calistoga police and the Napa County Sheriff's Office called off the shelter in place issued during the manhunt.

The search was concentrated in the area of state Highway 128 and Petrified Forest Road.

The robbery was first reported around 1:50 p.m. in the area of the Lakewood Shopping Center at 9018 Brooks Road S. in Windsor, according to Sonoma County sheriff's spokeswoman Sgt. Cecile Focha.

Witnesses told responding deputies that an SUV pulled up behind an armored car parked outside of a Chase bank, two masked men got out and shot one of the guards with a long gun. The suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, Focha said.

The guard was rushed to a hospital. The extent of his injuries was not known, but he was later released Tuesday night.

The Sonoma County Sheriff's Office alerted surrounding law enforcement agencies to the suspect's description and heard a short time later that Calistoga police had spotted the suspects, Focha said.

Focha said the Sonoma sheriff's helicopter and deputies from the SWAT team responded to assist in the manhunt for the robbery suspects.

Sonoma sheriff's investigators were continuing to interview witnesses in the area of the robbery. The FBI was assisting in the investigation, Focha said.
