A 44-year-old Santa Rosa man suspected of robbing an Exchange Bank branch on Stony Point Road was in custody Wednesday, Santa Rosa police said.
Jason Michael Haub was arrested Wednesday morning at his home after he was identified by several tipsters who recognized him from surveillance images police released after the robbery, Sgt. Josh Ludtke said.
The robbery unfolded about 4:10 p.m. Nov. 8 at the bank branch near the Oliver’s Market at Stony Point Road and West Third Street in west Santa Rosa. Wearing a baseball cap to shield his face, a man passed a handwritten note to a teller and left on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, police said. The teller activated a silent alarm.
After receiving tips about Haub, police compared additional photographs of Haub with video footage from the bank and confirmed it appeared to be him, Ludtke said. They also tracked Haub’s whereabouts on the day of the robbery and have developed a suspected motive, the sergeant said.
Haub was booked into the Sonoma County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail. He appears in court Friday.

Groundwater: What you need to know

Groundwater basins are California’s largest reservoirs, more than 10 times the size of all surface reservoirs combined.
Groundwater provides about 38 percent of the state’s total annual water supply, and up to 60 percent in dry years.
Sonoma County draws more than 70 percent of its water from wells to meet demand for 260 million gallons a day.
More than 80 percent of Californians rely, in part, on groundwater for their drinking water.
Groundwater and surface water are interconnected, and groundwater pumping draws water from rivers and streams.
