Oklahoma City police arrested a man Monday in connection with at least four armed ATM robberies and a kidnapping.
Jason Orrantia, 19, was booked into the Oklahoma County jail on robbery and kidnapping complaints after he was apprehended in the 2600 block of SW 41, police said.
The first robbery occurred about 3 a.m. April 27. After withdrawing $100 from an outdoor Bank of America ATM, 2701 S Harvey Ave., the victim said a heavy-set man wearing a long, fake beard robbed him at gunpoint, police said.
About 10:30 p.m. Thursday, a man was kidnapped at gunpoint at SW 36 and S Walker Avenue. The victim was told to get into a car with two suspects who stole his credit cards and asked for his PIN, police said. After obtaining money from the victim’s account, the suspects dropped him off near SW 29 and S May Avenue.
An hour later, another robbery took place. Before the victim could withdraw money from a Chase Bank ATM at 4500 S Pennsylvania Ave., she said a Hispanic male with a pistol approached her vehicle. She gave him her purse containing credit cards and account information, police said.
The victim told police the man fled in a gray car driven by an unknown person.
The next day, a fourth incident took place about 5 p.m. again at the Bank of America at 2701 S Harvey Ave. As the victim approached the ATM, a man covering the lower half of his face with his shirt threatened her with a handgun, police said. The victim refused to withdraw any money for the man, but she gave him $12 from her billfold. The man fled when she grabbed her cellphone to call for help, police said.
