4:15pm       3200 Blk. Mission                  Fraud
Little has changed, except the methods used, when famed bank robber and escape artist Willie Sutton responded to the question of why he robbed banks. The infamous felon, who lived one year short of his eightieth birthday, responded, “Because that’s where the money is”.  While robbers of old used pistols to rob and Packards for escape, many of the robbers today use sleight of hand to get the money. One of those modern robbers walked into a bank on the 3200 Blk. of Mission and presented a check that looked a little, to use a word popular with some felons, “hinky”.  The type was too big on the routing number on the bottom of the check. She passed it to her manager who looked up the account and found the signature did not resemble the signature on several other cashed checks on the account. The manager called police and Ingleside Officers Dungca and Callupad responded to arrest the subject. They called the owner of the account who confirmed that the man trying to cash the check was a fraud. The suspect also had several outstanding warrants for his arrest for crimes involving narcotics and vehicle code violations. He was transported to Ingleside Station and booked for fraud and the warrants. Report number: 170066231

Serious Incidents:

3:10pm       700 Blk. Faxon                       Theft
An elderly man walked to the bank and withdrew a large amount of cash. He told Ingleside Officers Williams and Kikuchi that he was confronted by two men as he walked back to his parked car. The men said, “I know you have money. Give me the money”. The victim complied and the suspects walked south on Faxon to Ocean Avenue and disappeared. The officers contacted family members who responded to the scene and transported the victim home. The family members told the officers the victim’s wife is in hospice care and the victim is suffering from some cognitive mental issues. Report number: 170066667
