ORLAND – A bank robbery occurred on the afternoon of Tuesday March 26th at the Redding Bank of Commerce on Fourth and Walker Streets. Although the suspect did not display a gun during the commission of the crime, he successfully got away with cash from the bank.
Investigators thereafter followed up on multiple leads that led to them serving a search warrant on a residence in the town of Willows.
In early April, the Orland Police Department advised that they had identified the suspect as 52-year-old Kenneth Stephen Meza. Meza is now on a parole hold as well as for the bank robbery.
Police report that Meza has not been seen since the robbery and that “he may be in a white 2018 Toyota Tacoma CA LP# 58461M2. OPD asks that if you see Meza or the Tacoma, to please call dispatch at 530-934-6431.”
Meza has a previous arrest in his past – on September 6, 2018 for DUI, resisting arrest and parole violation.
