Alleged Berkeley Bank Robbers Arrested

BERKELEY, CA Two brothers with criminal records have been charged with multiple felony counts for a string of five armed robberies at banks in Oakland, Alameda, Berkeley and Fremont, police said.

Russell Bartlow, 53, and Jerron Bartlow, 36, who live together in the 2000 block of 100th Avenue in East Oakland, were arrested in Oakland last Wednesday and were charged last Friday. They’re scheduled to return to Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland on April 10 to enter pleas. Berkeley police Officer Mike Parsons wrote in a probable cause statement that the Bartlow brothers were arrested for robberies at a Chase Bank branch in Oakland on Nov. 19, a Citibank branch in Alameda on Dec. 19, a Bank of the West branch in Oakland on Jan. 23, a Chase Bank branch at 1870 Solano Ave. in Berkeley on Feb. 9 and at a bank in Fremont on March 18. A total of at least $40,000 was taken in the robberies, Parsons said.

Security camera footage and motor vehicle records connected the Bartlow brothers to the series of crimes, Parsons said. One of the suspects wore a security guard jacket and was armed with a small-framed black revolver, according to Parsons. In addition, a records check indicated that Russell Bartlow was on probation for a conviction in federal court for a bank robbery, Parsons wrote.

When officers searched the brothers’ home they found a security guard jacket, black cargo pants, black Nike shoes and a small black revolver that were all consistent with what authorities believe Russell Bartlow wore
or used during the bank robberies, Parsons said. Russell Bartlow ultimately confessed to four of the five robberies, including both incidents in Oakland and the incidents in Berkeley and Fremont, according to Parsons.

He also admitted to wearing the security guard uniform and being armed with a revolver during the robberies, Parsons said. Russell Bartlow is charged with nine counts of second-degree robbery and one count each of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance with a firearm and possession for sale
of a controlled substance.

Jerron Bartlow is charged with two counts of second-degree robbery and one count of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm. Prosecutors say Russell Bartlow has seven prior felony convictions dating back to 1985. They say he has three convictions for armed robbery, two for second-degree robbery, one for second-degree commercial burglary and one for possession for sale of a controlled substance.

Prosecutors say Jerron Bartlow has a prior conviction for possession for sale of cocaine base.

Russell Bartlow is being held in custody in lieu of $1.2 million bail and Jerron Bartlow is being held in lieu of $410,000 bail.

Police review transit bus video from Las Vegas shooting that killed Montana man

LAS VEGAS Police and prosecutors were reviewing transit bus video Monday ahead of an initial court appearance for a man suspected of killing one passenger and wounding another for what authorities called no apparent reason when the double-decker bus stopped during the weekend on the Las Vegas Strip. The recording was considered evidence and was not being made public, Las Vegas police officer Larry Hadfield said. Bus security video systems are equipped to record sound. But Hadfield said the suspected gunman, Rolando Cardenas, may not have said anything before he started shooting.

“There doesn’t seem to be anything that preceded it,” the Hadfield said. “There were no incidents prior that we know of.”

Prosecutors are expected to file murder, attempted murder, weapon and other charges Wednesday during Cardenas’ initial court appearance in Las Vegas. The 55-year-old Las Vegas man refused for several hours to leave the bus surrounded by SWAT officers, and fired at least one shot during the standoff before his arrest Saturday afternoon, police said. He was jailed without bail, and is expected to have a lawyer appointed to his case when he appears in Las Vegas Justice Court. Attempts to reach his relatives were unsuccessful.

“Any time something like this happens on the Las Vegas Strip we pay special attention,” Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said. “Taking over a bus in the middle of the day and shooting someone in cold blood. We consider this one of our highest priorities.”

Gary Breitling, 57, of Sidney, Montana, died at University Medical Center of a gunshot to the chest, the Clark County coroner said. His death was ruled a homicide. Messages left at telephone numbers associated with Brietling and family members were not immediately returned. A 39-year-old Las Vegas man who was wounded in the stomach was discharged from the same hospital, a spokeswoman said Monday. Police had said that man’s injury did not appear life-threatening. He was not identified.

Hadfield said homicide investigators were still trying to identify bus passengers and sidewalk pedestrians who fled when shots were fired. The double-decker bus, dubbed the Deuce and operated by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada, had stopped near the Cosmopolitan hotel-casino in the heart of the tourist district when Cardenas stood up and fired several times, police said.

Assistant Clark County Sheriff Tom Roberts said the gunman did not fire all the bullets in his gun, but shot at least once at police during the standoff.

Police did not return fire. Roberts said it appeared Cardenas may have had “mental issues.”

Police said both shooting victims were seated at the back of the bus near Cardenas.
