A 34-year-old Anaheim man suspected of committing as many as 15 bank robberies throughout Orange County during the past year was arrested after a two-month police investigation, authorities said Thursday.
Ronald Scott Heiberg was taken into custody by Garden Grove investigators and Anaheim officers after a pursuit that ended in a crash in Stanton about midday Wednesday, Lt. Scott Hamilton said.
Hamilton said Heiberg had been sought for the last 18 months by state corrections officers for violation of parole and had been wanted by the FBI and "numerous" other Orange County law enforcement agencies for the last year.
Heiberg is a suspect in "a couple of bank robberies" in Garden Grove in recent months, he said.
Officers of Garden Grove's Tactical Response Against Perpetrators unit had been developing information on Heiberg's whereabouts for the last two months, tracing him to an Anaheim apartment building in the 3200 block of Cabot Street, Hamilton said.
