On July 27, at around 2:12 a.m., officers received an alert from the VacationLand Federal Credit Union cooperative located at 2402 University Drive East in Huron, California. Upon arriving at the location, the Huron Police Department officers could reportedly hear noises from the roof of the drive-thru area where a large trash bin is suspiciously placed under an access door.

According to Pandolfo, after the officers took a position at a safe distance, the access door allegedly popped open with a loud crash. Thereafter, a backpack was dropped from the opened access door. Once the bank robbery suspect attempted to exit, the officers swooped in and demanded he get on the ground.

Police body camera footage showed how the bank robbery suspect was startled and fell from the ceiling straight into the trash bin. The officers then handcuffed the bank robbery suspect who allegedly surrendered without incident.
