The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said it has identified another suspect in the robbery of the Bristow Walmart last month.

On July 4, 2015, a man dressed in black and wearing a black vest told an assistant manager he was with Loomis. The manager handed over more than $70,000 and the man left in a black Chevy sedan.

A few days later, the OSBI arrested Rico Robertson, the store manager on duty at the time, and his step-daughter, Mariah Bustamonte. They said Robertson devised the plan for the robbery and had Bustamonte drive the actual robber to the store.

On Tuesday, August 4, 2015, the OSBI identified that suspect as Bryan Jervante Johnson, 22, of Bakersfield, California. The OSBI said Johnson is a distant relative of Robertson's.

The OSBI is looking for Johnson and says he's also wanted in California for several robberies and a shooting. Agents believe Robertson dropped Johnson at a bus station in Tulsa after the robbery.

The OSBI says anyone who knows where he is can call 1-800-522-8017.

Agents say Rico Robertson’s wife, Monica, was told about the robbery beforehand and helped destroy evidence after the fact. Both Johnson and Monica Robertson face one count of conspiracy to commit a felony.

The OSBI says Monica Robertson was arrested in Okmulgee Tuesday afternoon.

Robertson and Bustamonte are in jail on complaints of conspiracy to embezzle and embezzlement.
