Upland bank robbery suspects arrested in West Covina

Two men arrested by West Covina police on suspicion of an attempted car burglary in a Home Depot parking lot Wednesday have been linked to an Upland bank robbery from last month, officials said.
Darryl Matthews, 29, and Lorenzo Carrillo, 28, both of Los Angeles, were booked on suspicion of robbery, West Covina police Lt. Ron Mitchell said in a written statement.
Police arrested Matthews, Carrillo and a third person who was ultimately released without charges after an attempted vehicle burglary was reported shortly before noon Wednesday in the parking lot of Home Depot, 2220 S. Azusa Avenue, according to police officials and sheriff’s booking records.
Officers stopped the men in a car as they were about to get on the 10 Freeway from Azusa Avenue, Mitchell said.
“When the suspect vehicle was searched, officers located ski masks, latex gloves and two demand notes,” Mitchell said. The suspects were additionally charged with suspicion of robbery.
West Covina police detectives Wednesday connected Matthews and Carrillo to an Aug. 10 robbery at a Chase bank branch in Upland, Mitchell said.
The suspects were turned over to the Upland Police Department, where they were being held.
