Police Ask for Help Identifying Santa Clara County Serial Bank Robber

The suspect has been linked to six robberies in four South Bay cities including Los Gatos.


The suspect in one Los Gatos bank robbery has now been linked to five others in the South Bay and Los Gatos-Monte Sereno and Campbell police are looking for the public's help in identifying him.

A white male in his 30s, approximately 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 with a stocky build and a goatee, or full five o-clock shadow was seen robbing the following banks: 

  • Aug. 24: Bank of the West in Campbell
  • Sept. 5: US Bank in Campbell
  • Sept. 10: Wells Fargo in Sunnyvale
  • Sept. 18: Wells Fargo in San Jose
  • Sept. 25: Chase Bank in Los Gatos
  • Oct. 16: Bank of America in Sunnyvale 

"All the police departments have been working together but want to put it out to the public," said Campbell Police Sgt. Gary Berg. "Since the most recent pictures obtained in Sunnyvale were good ones, we're hoping someone would recognize him."

Campbell Police have been working with the Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department, San Jose Police Department and Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety after video surveillance showed the same suspect in each of the six robberies. 

"No weapon has been seen at any of the robberies," Berg said. "We don’t have any information on vehicles associated with him but from bank surveillance video, very clear it’s the same suspect in all robberies."

Anyone with information regarding the suspect or any of the bank robberies is asked to contact the Campbell Police Department Investigations Unit at 408-871-5190. Those wishing to remain anonymous can also contact the Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at 408-947-STOP (7867).
