REDDING, Calif. - The Redding Police Department is on the lookout for a second suspect in an attempted robbery.

On Sunday, Feb. 24, around 1:30 p.m., police say they responded to a report of an attempted robbery at the Dollar General on Meadow View Drive in Redding.

An employee says that two masked men entered the store demanding money. The employee refused, and both men fled the area.

Citizens standing nearby saw the suspects running away from the store. They say they felt that something was “not right” due to the suspect's suspicious clothes and demeanor.

The citizens followed the suspects and were able to direct officers toward one of them. He was captured by deputies with the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office on Airport Rd., approximately a quarter of a mile from the business.

Police were able to arrest Anthony Castaneda, 22, of Redding, who was identified by the employees and witnesses and was found with items that linked him to the crime. He was arrested for attempted robbery and booked into the Shasta County Jail.

In the search for the second suspect, police used a K-9 as well as a CHP helicopter but were unable to find him.

The second suspect is described as a white, male adult with a medium build.

When he entered the store he was wearing a two-tone light and dark jacket with blue jeans and blue sneakers. However, during their search for the suspect, officers found his clothing near the crime scene.

Redding authorities say that he is not considered a danger to the public at this time. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Redding Police Department at (530) 225-4200.
