A man and a woman suspected of robbing multiple banks in the Bay Area and Northern California have been arrested, San Jose police announced Wednesday.

Police believe Antioch residents Brandon Lopez, 37, and Tamara Bush, 43, are responsible for at least six bank robberies or attempted bank robberies in the cities of San Jose, Milpitas, Fremont, Modesto and Sacramento.

The bank robbery in San Jose happened on Feb. 12 along the 500 block of West Capitol Expressway, police said.

A male suspect entered the bank, handed a note to a teller and demanded money, according to police. The suspect took off with more than $1,000 in cash.

San Jose police detectives identified Lopez as the primary suspect in the bank robbery. During the course of their investigation, they connected Lopez to the five other bank robberies or attempted bank robberies.
