They landed at Sea-Tac Airport on Nov. 13, 2008, and worked their way south, stopping at a Wells Fargo in Auburn and another in Portland. A second attempt at a Portland Wells Fargo was made a day later. In each case, bank tellers refused to hand over the money. The group was successful, however, at two others stops, securing $3,400.Two of Maiden’s co-conspirators were arrested when they returned to Sea-Tac during the afternoon of Nov. 14, 2008, to catch a flight back to California.last_img read more
