GRASS VALLEY, CA Mar. 2, 2010 – The Grass Valley Police have made an arrest in connection with the February 2nd robbery of Bank of the West located at 460 Brunswick in the city.

On February 13th, police received information from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office advising that a subject meeting the description of the suspect in the Grass Valley robbery had been detained near Twentynine Palms, California on unrelated matters. Detectives from the Grass Valley Police Department, working in coordination with the Nevada County District Attorney's Office and San Bernardino County detectives, continued the investigation in San Bernardino County.

Through their investigative efforts, Grass Valley detectives secured evidence substantiating the robbery and positively identified the suspect as David Andrew Clarke - 44 yrs, of Grass Valley. Clarke was being detained on two outstanding Nevada County Bench Warrants from February 2008 as well as an additional charge for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

In addition to this case, the investigation yielded information connecting Clarke to other bank robberies in California dating back over 5 years. Law enforcement agencies in those jurisdictions, including La Mesa and Roseville, were notified. The Federal Bureau of Investigations - Riverside is assisting with the coordinated investigative efforts.

Clarke remains in the custody of San Bernardino County pending court proceedings on the felony firearm charge. A date has not yet been determined for his return to Nevada County on the Bench Warrants or robbery charges.

In response to the efforts of Grass Valley detectives, Chief John Foster stated, "This is yet another example of the level of professional and quality personnel we have in our employ. The citizens of Grass Valley can take pride in knowing that these employees are dedicated to maintaining a high quality of life through public safety in our community."

Anyone having information on other crimes in the City of Grass Valley is encouraged to contact the Grass Valley Police at 530.477.4600.
