A citizen alerted police to a suspected bank robber Thursday afternoon.
At about 2:40 p.m., the Bakersfield Police Department’s Communication Center received a call from a citizen to alert officers that the suspect of the attempted robbery of Bank of America was at the Floyd’s Hardware Store located at 2020 South Chester Avenue.
Officers and detectives were sent to the store where 47-year-old Steven Doria was located and taken into custody without incident.
Doria was booked into the Kern County Jail on charges of attempted robbery.
Doria is on post-release community supervision pursuant to Assembly Bill 109.
On April 4, 2011, AB-109 was approved, placing non-violent, non-serious and non-sexual offenders under county level supervision after their release from state prison.
