After about a month of searching for the suspect in an Oceanside bank robbery, officers have made an arrest.

Edward Jones Inzunza, 30, was arrested Friday in connection with the January 4 robbery of a Carlsbad Comerica Bank on El Camino Real, according to a federal complaint filed with the U.S. District Court. 

Inzunza was arrested during a traffic stop at the intersection of Lewis and Thunder in Vista.

Authorities said he entered the bank at about 4:30 p.m. and demanded money from a teller. He kept one hand in his pocket, and some bank employees believed he was armed. He fled in a white pickup truck. 

Crime Stoppers received an anonymous tip last week, saying he or she recognized Inzunza from the surveillance photo released after the robbery. The FBI used this information and evidence from the scene to file charges against Inzunza.
