A man and two women were arrested this week in connection with a bank robbery at a Chase in Santa Rosa earlier this month, according to police. Based on a surveillance photograph from the robbery, police identified the male suspect as 34-year-old Darrick Alester, of Santa Rosa. Police identified the two female suspects as 26-year-old Nastajia Helene Edwards, and 28-year-old Olivia Earlene Green, both of Santa Rosa, for their involvement in the robbery.
At about 11:20 a.m. on April 4, police were notified of a robbery at a Chase at 835 Fourth St. According to the police investigation, the three suspects drove to downtown Santa Rosa and parked their vehicle. Burch exited the vehicle and entered the bank. Officers determined Burch handed the teller a note demanding cash. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash from the teller, the suspect fled the bank and returned to the vehicle. Police determined Edwards and Green drove the getaway vehicle for Burch.
Edwards and Green were arrested for robbery and an arrest warrant was issued for Burch. At about 6 p.m. Thursday, an officer saw Burch walking on Mendocino Avenue near Elliot Avenue. Burch attempted to run away from police and headed into an apartment complex. Officers were able to locate Burch within minutes inside an apartment. Officers took Burch into custody and booked into the Sonoma County Jail.
