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.
