Deputies arrest two suspects in Sonoma Bank robbery.

Deputies from the Sonoma Police Department arrested two suspects for bank robbery this weekend. On Saturday, September 9th at about 2:00 PM, deputies received a call of a bank robbery that occurred at the Wells Fargo Bank, located at W. Napa and 5th West in Sonoma.

Deputies were aware of the potential suspects due to an investigation from the Napa Police Department. A flier had been issued earlier in the day detailing that the suspects, 34-year-old Catrina Hockney from Napa and 45-year old Miguel Maravilla, from Vallejo. Both were listed as subjects of interest in numerous attempted robberies in Napa. A description of their vehicle, a 2007 Tan Chevrolet pickup had also been listed in the flier.

When the deputies received the call they observed the Tan Chevrolet pickup pulling away from the area of the Wells Fargo branch. The deputies made a traffic stop at W. Napa and 3rd West. They contacted and arrested Maravilla and Hockney without incident. At the time of traffic stop, Hockney was lying down in the back seat attempting to change her clothes. After her arrest, deputies found a large amount of cash on Hockney.

Deputies responded to the Wells Fargo Bank and contacted tellers there who told them that a woman came into the bank holding a lunch box. When she got to the counter, she placed the lunch box on the counter and pulled out a note indicating this was a robbery and she wanted all large bills. The teller complied with the suspect’s demands, gave her money from her drawer and the suspect left. The teller described Hockney’s physical description. A video surveillance taken from the bank confirmed that Hockney was the suspect.

Both Hockney and Maravilla were booked into the Sonoma County Jail and booked on charges of robbery and conspiracy. They remain in custody with bail set at $500,000.
