A 53-year-old man from Garden Grove, Southern California, has been apprehended by the Gilroy Police Department in connection with an attempted bank robbery that occurred last week. The incident took place on February 3 at approximately 2:25 p.m. at a bank branch located in the 7100 block of Camino Arroyo in Gilroy, according to a news release issued by the Gilroy Police Department on Wednesday.
The suspect allegedly handed a note to a teller, indicating his intention to commit a robbery. However, he left the bank without taking any cash. Following an investigation, detectives from the Gilroy Police Department identified the suspect as the 53-year-old Garden Grove man. Subsequently, a warrant for his arrest was obtained.
Law enforcement agencies across the state were alerted about the warrant, and on Tuesday, officers from the Garden Grove Police Department arrested the suspect at his residence. Gilroy police officers then traveled to Southern California, took custody of the suspect, and transported him back to Santa Clara County. He has since been booked into jail on charges related to the attempted bank robbery.
