While one of our most interesting criminals, certainly not the smartest.
While Padilla pleaded not guilty to her charges, evidence found from the search warrant link her to several of the robberies.
Inside her Watsonville home police found some of the clothes she allegedly wore when she robbed the six banks including a t-shirt with “Garden Isle of Kauii” written on the front, the same shirt described in the Pismo Beach robbery. In Padilla’s car police found several hand written notes, one read “hand me all of your large bills. I will shoot you.”
