22-38245 Robbery Suspects Arrested
Posted on Oct 13, 2022

The San Bernardino Police Violent Crimes Unit began investigating an armed take-over bank robbery in November of 2021. While detectives were following leads for possible suspects, an additional armed robbery occurred in March 2022 and another armed take-over bank robbery occurred in April of 2022 at two other locations in the city. Detectives found evidence linking the three San Bernardino robberies together as well as a fourth bank robbery that occurred in the City of Pomona. Detectives identified Mosely and Pelayo as the suspects through evidence-based research utilizing scientific investigative resources with the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Both suspects were arrested during the service of search warrants and are charged in a federal criminal complaint with one count of armed credit union robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a violent crime. Mosely and Pelayo are in federal custody and have been ordered jailed without bond. They were arraigned on October 12, 2022, at United States District Court in Riverside, California. If convicted of both charges, the defendants would face a statutory maximum sentence of life in federal prison.

A complaint contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

FBI Special Agents and SBPD Detectives are continuing to follow leads for the investigations with the anticipation of additional charges or counts being added to the complaint.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anybody with information regarding any incident involving Mosley or Pelayo is asked to contact Detective C. Emon at [email protected] or Sergeant B. Baker at [email protected].
