The two people arrested for robbing three local banks are scheduled to appear in court this morning. Police arrested 55-year-old George Gonzales of Santa Maria and 33-year-old Tonya Young of Paso Robles after a Chase Bank robbery on El Camino Real.
Investigators believe that the two are connected to the robbery of two branches of Bank of America in Pismo Beach and Arroyo Grande. Police say Gonzales used the same vehicle in both the Arroyo Grande and Atascadero robberies. Gonzales is accused of bank robbery, and Young is facing multiple charges.
