A suspected bank-robbing couple dubbed a modern "Bonnie and Clyde" has been arrested in California after allegedly pulling two stickups in Greeley, authorities said Wednesday. The suspects, Christina Drummond, 23, and Joseph Thomas Nieto, 35, both of California, where arrested in Burlingame, a suburb on the San Francisco Peninsula Tuesday night, by Los Banos, Calif., police detectives working with the FBI and Colorado investigators. Last week, the Weld County District Attorney's Office issued arrest warrants for the couple in connection with two Greeley robberies. One stickup was Dec. 15 at the Premier Cash Advance office and the other was Christmas Eve at Guaranty Bank and Trust Co., the FBI said in a statement. With authorities hunting them in Colorado, the couple headed for Central California where they're accused of robbing a Rabobank in Los Banos Jan. 12, police there said. The couple is also suspected in a robbery in Visalia, Calif.
