SACRAMENTO MAN RECEIVES FOUR YEARS IN PRISON

AFTER PLEADING GUILTY TO ROSEVILLE BANK ROBBERY

 

            A 52-year-old Sacramento man has been sent to state prison for four years after admitting his guilt to robbing a bank in Roseville.

Prosecutor Rick Opich of the Placer County District Attorney’s Office said Steven Kenneth Holmes entered First Bank on Douglas Boulevard on Dec. 2, handed the teller a note demanding cash and then fled in a taxi cab that he leased as a driver.

Roseville police and Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies tracked Holmes to a motel on Auburn Boulevard in Sacramento. Holmes barricaded himself in a room for about three hours before a SWAT team fired tear gas into the room, forcing him to surrender. He was not found with a weapon.

            In an appearance Jan. 26 before Placer County Superior Court Judge J. Richard Couzens, Holmes entered a guilty plea to second-degree robbery and was given the prison term. He was also ordered to pay $1,000 in fines and restitution.
