Man, 38, Indicted For 7 Bank Robberies Across Northern California

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A Mammoth Lakes man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for alleged bank robberies across five Northern California counties earlier in the year. The US Attorney’s Office for the East District of California announced the indictment against 38-year-old John William Boland on Friday. Prosecutors allege Boland either robbed or tried to rob seven banks over the course of five weeks. Boland reportedly demanded that the teller give him money from the “second” drawer in each of the robberies. He also allegedly warned the teller to make sure the money didn’t have any dye packs or tracking devices. In at least one robbery, prosecutors say Boland indicated that he was armed. The robberies all happened between March 29 and May 4. Banks in Sutter Creek, South Lake Tahoe, Truckee, Redding, Placerville, El Dorado Hills and Rancho Cordova were hit. Boland was arrested after the final attempted robbery at the Wells Fargo bank in Rancho Cordova thanks to a good description of him and his car from witnesses. If convicted, prosecutors say Boland is facing 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each county.

Shop With A Cop, COVID-style, Planned for December 11

Shop with a Cop was a fun, if chaotic, event, really kicking off the Christmas season. COVID, and the loss of K-Mart, changed that drastically last year and this year the Eastern Sierra Peace Officers Association has made modifications that bring it a little closer to the original intent: both celebration of the giving season and a chance for kids to give presents to friends and family members.

DMATT’ s Weather

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving Day. Forecast models continue to show a dry and mild thru the Holiday weekend. High pressure heights have dropped to 582 DM, still quite strong for the end of November. So my confidence is high that we will have slow warming to above normal temperatures and continued dry weather through at least December 1. So by then Bishop is looking at the low 70s and Mammoth Lakes mid 50s. Long term data still does not show any measurable precipitation for the remainder of November through at least the first week of December. It looks like La Nina will continue to dictate drier than normal conditions for a while longer…DMATT.

A day trip to Devils Creek Distillery

Driving through Mojave for the past several months, you might have seen the billboard at the south end of town that says "BOURBON" in huge letters. This sign is for the Devils Creek Distillery in Mammoth Lakes. As we'd drive by I would usually say, "I'd like to go there, sometime."
