Reward for 4th suspect in Stockton bank robbery, shootout upped to $50k

STOCKTON -- A reward for information leading to the capture of the fourth person wanted in connection with a deadly Stockton bank robbery and shootout climbed to $50,000 Thursday.

The FBI announced they would pay an additional cash reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the fourth suspect involved in the robbery, hostage situation and gunbattle on Wednesday, July 16.

The sister of the hostage killed took part in Thursday's event and made a plea for anyone with information to step forward.

"Step forward with any knowledge or information to bring these criminals down. Let's take out city back. This is our city, not theirs. Take it back," Dawn Holt, the sister of Misty Holt-Singh, said.

Change of venue request likely in case of Stockton shootout suspect

STOCKTON, Calif. - If 19-year-old Jaime Ramos is put on trial for last week's bank robbery and shootout with police, prosecutors hope the trial takes place in Stockton. But they fully expect the defense attorney for Ramos to file a change of venue motion to have the trial moved to another county.

"We need to do our best not to try this case in the press. Anybody can get a fair trial in Stockton," San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Robert Himelblau said.

Trials are generally moved because a judge feels intense news coverage makes it too difficult to find jurors who haven't made up their minds.

Himelblau said he's never had that problem in Stockton, despite some high profile cases.

Former gang member: There is hope for members who want out

A week after a bank robbery at the Bank of the West in Stockton led to the shooting death of Misty Holt-Singh, News10 spoke with former gang member Christen about life in a gang.

Christen said once he heard about the robbery and shootout one thing came to mind.

"When I saw it, it didn't surprise me," he said. "When you are in a gang, you do things you never think you will do."

Stockton police have offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a fourth suspect, believed to have dropped of the three bank robbers. Christen said it may be hard to catch the person.

"To be honest, I am not sure, but there is always a possibility," he said. "Snitching is something you just don't do, especially here in Stockton."

Asparagus Festival to return with new promoters, new location

STOCKTON - The Stockton Asparagus Festival may be over, but the San Joaquin Asparagus Festival will take it's place in 2015 at the county fairgrounds.

Stockton-area farmers and racing promoters Tony and Carol Noceti said Wednesday they hope to produce a festival next year that's bigger and better than the previous versions, which were held first in Oak Grove Park, and then in downtown Stockton.

The Nocetis were unable to provide any details of how the festival will look, other than to say it will have plenty of space, parking and a safe environment.

They also said they hope to include previous festival directors in their advisory group as they construct the new version of the festival.

"They've done a great job for years, and gave a lot of money to charities," Tony Noceti said. "We want to add to what's already good and make it even better."
