SAN DIEGO — A man who allegedly used a demand note to rob a Mira Mesa credit union Friday was arrested a short time later during a traffic stop.
The bandit fled with an undisclosed amount of money in a gray SUV, Sgt. Ray Battrick said.
With help from personnel aboard a police helicopter, patrol officers caught up with the suspect’s vehicle and pulled it over on Mira Mesa Boulevard, near Camino Ruiz. The 42-year-old driver was arrested on suspicion of robbery and booked into San Diego Central Jail, the sergeant said.
The driver was being held without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
