Dublin in-store bank robber a suspect in other robberies

Multiple law enforcement agencies involved in Bay Area search for U.S. Bank branch robber

The suspect in a robbery at a bank branch inside a grocery store in Dublin last week likely is responsible for numerous other bank robberies

in the Bay Area and the Central Valley.

Lt. Nathan Schmidt of the Alamaeda County Sheriff's office, which supplies police services to Dublin, said today multiple law enforcement agencies are involved in the ongoing investigation to try to identify and apprehend the suspect.

The suspect came to the U.S. Bank Branch at the Safeway store at 4440 Tassajara Road at about 6:30 p.m. last Tuesday and gave the clerk a note

demanding money, Schmidt said.

The clerk then gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money and the man fled the store on foot.

Police describe the suspect as a white man who is between 5-foot-8 and 6 feet tall, weights about 170 pounds and was wearing a yellow-colored Notre Dame baseball cap, dark-colored sunglasses, a black short-sleeve button-up shirt and blue jeans.

Dublin police said anyone who has information about the suspect's identity should call Detective Sgt. Rafael Alvarez at (925) 833-6682 or Detective Richard Ray at (925) 552-4561.
