Man Arrested for Burglary at Wells Fargo After Trying to Cash Check He Stole in San Jose

24-year-old Sedric Mitchell, of Rodeo, was arrested for Commercial Burglary, Forgery and Possession of Stolen Property.

 

Hercules police responded to a fraud in progress at the Wells Fargo Bank on Sycamore Avenue on Tuesday, Patch has learned. This led to the arrest of a man who police determined was responsible for a commercial robbery in San Jose. 

Hercules Police shared the following details: 

The reporting party advised an African American male adult was attempting to cash a stolen check. When the first officer arrived he observed a gray Chevrolet, with three occupants, parked in front of the bank. A female driver appeared to be acting as a look out and tried to leave the area when officers arrived.  

 An officer contacted the occupants of the vehicle and learned the driver was waiting for her friend, who was inside the bank cashing a check. Officers contacted the male in question and determined the check he was trying to cash had been stolen during a commercial burglary in San Jose.

24-year-old Sedric Mitchell, of Rodeo, was arrested for Commercial Burglary, Forgery and Possession of Stolen Property. He was transported him to the Martinez Detention Facility. The occupants of the vehicle were released pending further investigation.

Amazing-I had 4 checks stolen from my workplace in Oakland about 9 months ago, 1 of which was cashed within an hour for almost $5,000 by a major bank (my major bank, not the same one, also had to sign off on the forged check). I filed a report with Oakland PD, which included telling them I had security footage of the 2 perpetrators, but to this day I have not been contacted about this grand theft. I'm guessing they have continued their thieving ways and victimized more innocent citizens. Kudos to the bank personnel and the Hercules Police for reporting and apprehending this criminal. I just wish the same kind of vigilance happened in my case.
