Three suspects were arrested and charged, after fleeing officers in connection with October 21st bank robbery

On October 21, 2019 at approximately 5:25 p.m., two suspects later identified as Bryan Colston and Damario Crawford, entered the Provident Credit Union located on Argonaut Way in Fremont to commit a robbery.  Colston approached a bank teller and presented a note demanding money.  After going to multiple tellers, Colston took US Currency from one of the teller drawers. 
As this was occurring, the Fremont Police Department received an alarm activation and a 911 call from employees inside the bank.  The caller advised there was an in-progress robbery taking place inside the bank.  The caller provided additional details of the two suspects and stated they fled in grey colored Honda or similar type sedan, driven by a female.
Within one minute of the broadcast, Sgt. Joshua Ehling located a possible suspect vehicle traveling west on Mowry Ave approaching I-880 northbound.  Sgt. Ehling could see a female, later identified as Larisha Kilgore, driving the vehicle and two suspects attempting to duck down in the back seat.
A vehicle pursuit was initiated as the car entered northbound I-880.  The suspect vehicle then fled at a high rate of speed.  A California Highway Patrol Officer in a fully marked patrol vehicle, happened to be in the area at the time, immediately joined the pursuit.  A pursuit intervention technique (PIT) was performed as the vehicles approached Whipple Ave in Hayward.  This maneuver turned the vehicle around and helped disable it.  As the vehicle came to a stop, Colston immediately fled from the vehicle on the freeway.  Crawford and Kilgore stayed inside the vehicle, as directed by officers and were arrested.  Multiple police units pursued Colston as he ran on the freeway between vehicles and he was eventually tackled and then arrested.
Evidence from the robbery was located inside the vehicle as well as inside the pockets of the suspects.  The suspect vehicle was found to have been stolen out of the City of Hayward five days prior.  The three suspects and a third motorist were all transported to local hospitals where they were treated and released for complaint of pain injuries.  The suspects were later interviewed and booked into custody.  High definition video surveillance from inside the bank was collected.
Colston was found to have a lengthy criminal history to include multiple prior felony convictions for robbery, carrying a loaded/concealed firearm, felon in possession of a firearm (two separate convictions), possession of a controlled substance while armed with a firearm (separate from above firearms convictions) and multiple probation violations.  In addition, Colston had also been recently arrested by Pleasant Hill PD for Felon in possession of a Firearm in August of 2019 (that case is still pending).  At the time of this bank robbery, Colston was out of custody and on “post release community supervision” (probation due to an early release from custody).  
Crawford also has a lengthy criminal history to include a prior felony conviction for assault with a firearm on a person (Crawford received a 3 year Prison sentence behind that prior conviction).
Kilgore was on probation for a prior stolen vehicle conviction and had a warrant for possession of a stolen vehicle at the time of this bank robbery.
Following this incident our Department was notified that the three suspects may be wanted in connection with other crimes in the Bay Area. Out of respect for the ongoing investigations, their names and photos were initially withheld to allow our law enforcement partners time to continue with their cases.
On October 23, 2019, the case was presented to the Alameda County District Attorney for review.  All three suspects were charged with multiple felony charges in connection with the bank robbery.  Further, Kilgore was also charged with additional felony crimes in connection to the pursuit and possession of the stolen vehicle.  The suspects remain in custody with a next scheduled court date of November 14, 2019.
