Suspect Arrested in Connection with Robbery of Bank of America in Fallbrook

The FBI is announcing the arrest of Scott Fredrick Moline, age 50, of Fallbrook, California, on Saturday, April 21, 2012.

Moline was arrested on Saturday, April 21, 2012 at approximately 4:00 p.m. without incident by FBI agents, San Diego Sheriff’s Department deputies, and California Highway Patrol officers.

Moline was arrested pursuant to a federal arrest warrant charging him with the robbery of the Bank of America located at 1125 South Main Avenue in Fallbrook, California on Wednesday, April 18, 2012.

On Wednesday, April 18, 2012, at approximately 9:56 a.m., the Bank of America branch located at 1125 South Main in Fallbrook, California was robbed by an unknown man. At the time of the robbery, the robber approached a teller and made a verbal demand for money. The robber stated that he was there to rob the teller and had explosives in a waiting car. After receiving a sum of money, the robber exited the bank. After the robber exited the bank, a dye pack exploded, covering the robber in red dye.

Following this robbery, the FBI issued a news release to local media for further dissemination to the public. As a result of the bank robbery surveillance photographs airing on local television stations and posting to the FBI’s webpage, the FBI received a number of telephone calls concerning the identity of the bank robbery suspect. This information, along with additional investigation, led to the filing of federal bank robbery charges against Moline.

Subsequent investigation by FBI agents and San Diego Sheriff’s deputies led to Moline’s arrest. It is anticipated that Moline will be booked into the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) and have his initial appearance before a U.S. Magistrate Judge on or about Monday, April 23, 2012. This case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Anyone with information concerning this robbery is asked to contact the FBI at telephone number (858) 565-1255. You may remain anonymous by calling the FBI.
