Two men have been arrested in connection with the robbery of a bank in Huntington Beach on Wednesday afternoon. According to Officer Jennifer Marlatt of the HBPD, the suspects are Wesley Lewison, 50, of Huntington Beach, and Gregory Roberts, 47, of San Francisco. They are charged with robbery and conspiracy.
The robbery occurred at the Bank of America branch at 18691 Main St. According to police, a man entered the bank, demanded cash and “simulated a weapon through his jacket.” He was given an undisclosed amount of cash and left, but an alert bank employee wrote down the license plate of the suspect’s vehicle.
Detectives determined that the suspect and a friend were headed to the Los Angeles International Airport
intending to flee the country. With the cooperation of the FBI, Los Angeles police, U.S. Customs, and the U.S. Marshals Service, both men were found at LAX where they were arrested. The investigation is ongoing, according to Officer Marlatt.
