    PRVNT Detectives and the Pacific Grove Police Department responded to the area and found Calantoc at a residence in the 1100 block of Seaview Avenue. He was arrested without incident.

    He was additionally charged with bringing a controlled substance into a jail facility and possession of a controlled substance for sale. Calantoc had a no bail felony warrant out of Santa Cruz County, a $240,000 felony warrant, and four misdemeanor warrants totaling $95,000. Calantoc was transported to the Monterey County Jail.

    Calantoc,  31, of  Sand City had previously been arrested in the “Mrs. Doubtfire” bank robbery at a US Bank branch in Santa Cruz.

    He is accused of demanding cash as he handed a teller a note at the bank at 110 Morrissey Blvd. on April 3 dressed as a woman and wearing a wig, purse and necklace. He had also been taped in the get-up at a Capitola bank, though he did not attempt to rob that bank. Police called the roughly 5-feet-5, 160 pound robber “Mrs. Doubtfire”after the character in a 1993 Robin Williams movie.
