A suspected bank robber is behind bars after a woman whose car he hit during the getaway declined a share of the booty to keep quiet.
Stockton police identified the alleged robber as 46-year-old Jerry Han.
According to investigators, Han walked into a branch of Bank of the West at noon Thursday and handed an employee a note demanding money.
Investigators say Han fled with the cash, but a few minutes later collided with another car. The driver told police that Han explained he had just robbed a bank and offered her a share of the take to keep quiet.
The woman called police. Han was arrested on suspicion of robbery.
