Police Find Evidence That Links Cristina Padilla To West Coast Bandit

Evidence found after police searched the alleged Central Coast Bandit’s Watsonville home links her to several more robberies. Cristina Padilla was arrested nearly two weeks ago on suspicion of robbing six banks throughout Central California. A search warrant issued for Padilla’s house, as well as two vehicles, uncovered clothing she wore during the robberies and demand notes.  She pleaded not guilty in a San Luis Obispo County courtroom last week to the current charges.
