Mrs. Doubtfire Has Been Arrested

Here is the real person behind the disguise, also known as the Mrs. Doubtfire bank robber. The suspect is Brandon Calantoc, 31 years old, out of Sand City in Monterey County.

On April 20, 2015 the Carmel PD was investigating a series of auto burglaries occurring in their city. Mr. Calantoc matched some of the descriptions provided and was a person of interest. During their investigation, they spotted Mr. Calantoc driving in his pickup and stopped him. He had warrants for his arrest out of Monterey County for previous burglary offenses. During the search of his vehicle, Carmel PD found drug paraphernalia and stolen property. They also located a purse and locket that matched the photos that Mrs. Doubtfire had during the robbery on April 3, 2015.

Carmel PD booked Mr. Calantoc into the Monterey County Jail on his fresh criminal charges and contacted SCPD regarding the articles found in his vehicle related to the bank robbery. It was determined Mr. Calantoc was the suspect known as Mrs. Doubtfire.

On April 21, 2015 Mr. Calantoc was being released from the Monterey County Jail on his charges in Monterey County. But as soon as he stepped out of the jail and assumed he was free, SCPD Detectives were there to greet him with a new set of handcuffs. Mr. Calantoc was taken into custody for the bank robbery and booked into the Santa Cruz County Jail.

Thanks to all the community members that tried their best to identify Mrs. Doubtfire. Also, a special thanks to Carmel PD for their diligent work and collaborative effort with SCPD!!
