Judge delays sentencing for ‘skateboard bandit’
By Neal Putnam
A Ramona man who pleaded guilty to robbing two banks as the “Skateboard Bandit” had his sentencing delayed Sept. 2 to Oct. 28.
Colter Stanley Johnson, 26, now lives with his parents in Ramona as part of conditions of his $100,000 property bond that comes with a 6 p.m. curfew, according to court records. He grew up in Ramona.
He was arrested Sept. 2, 2010, by San Diego Police after someone saw him leave on his skateboard from the Chase Bank at 12380 Poway Road and get into a white sport utility vehicle which was registered to his mother.
He had just robbed the bank of $4,151 and was arrested near his Ocean Beach apartment. Johnson pleaded guilty in May to robbing not only the Poway bank but also the Comerica Bank at 3361 Rosecrans St. in San Diego, which lost $3,995, on July 12, 2010.
U.S. District Court Judge Janis Sammartino could impose a maximum 25-year sentence, but a sentencing range between probation and eight years in federal prison is considered more likely.
