On September 15, 2010 at 11:05 a.m., the Elk Grove Police Department responded to the U.S. Bank located at 5000 Laguna Boulevard regarding a robbery that had taken place.
According to witnesses, an unidentified suspect entered the bank and demanded money from a teller. Fearing for their safety, the teller complied and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency. The unidentified suspect put the money into a white plastic grocery bag, and was last seen exiting the bank going towards Laguna Boulvard.
The suspect was described as a Caucasian male, approximately twenty years of age, five feet eight inches tall (5’8”), one hundred forty pounds (140 lbs.). The suspect was wearing a white shirt and black pants.
As officers were responding to the call, witnesses provided information that the suspect was now on the north side of Laguna Blvd. walking through the parking lot. 

Responding officers located an individual who matched the description of the suspect. Officers were able to detain the suspect, later identified as 23-year-old Elk Grove resident Michael Crandell.   

Officers also recovered a white plastic grocery bag containing U.S. currency. Witnesses to the bank robbery positively identify Crandell as the person who was responsible for the bank robbery.  

Crandell was arrested for robbery and later transported to the Sacramento County Jail. Due to the ongoing nature of this investigation, a photograph of Michael Crandell will not be released at this time.  

Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is asked to call the Elk Grove Police Department Detective Bureau at (916) 478-8060.
