Police arrested a man and woman at a Buena Park gas station following a daylight robbery Thursday afternoon at a bank in Costa Mesa.

According to Sgt. Ron Chamberlin of the Costa Mesa Police Department, a man entered First Bank at 3001 Harbor Blvd. at 3:25 p.m. Thursday and handed a teller a note demanding cash. The robber, who apparently did not use a weapon, fled the bank with a large amount of money. Chamberlin would not say how much was taken.

At 5:30 p.m., Buena Park police arrested Roger Dale Kenney, 51, of Anaheim without incident at a gas station in Buena Park. Officers also arrested Shavonne Nicole Brickmore, 23, of Buena Park, who was sitting in a black 2008 Ford Edge parked near the gas station. The stolen cash was recovered inside the vehicle.

Kenney was booked in Orange County Jail on suspicion of bank robbery, while Brickmore was booked on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery and later released due to insufficient evidence.

The Costa Mesa and Fullerton police departments and the FBI are investigating whether the incident in Costa Mesa is linked to other bank robberies in Orange County, Chamberlin said.
