A man was arrested early this morning on suspicion of robbing a bank in Campbell on Friday evening, police said. James Gillbert Kellems alias: James Davis, 51, of San Francisco, was arrested on suspicion of robbing the First Bank located at 790 E. Campbell Ave., according to police. The robbery occurred at about 5:15 p.m. Friday, when a suspect entered the bank, said he had a gun, and demanded cash. No gun was ever displayed, police said. The suspect fled on foot and was last seen in the area of Bascom and Campbell avenues. Shortly after midnight, police responded to a report of a prowler on El Solyo Avenue, located about two blocks from where the robbery suspect had last been seen. The description of the prowler matched the description given of the robbery suspect, and when officers responded to the area, they saw a man jumping fences in an attempt to flee. A perimeter was established and he was eventually found hiding in a residential backyard. The man, identified as Kellems, was booked into Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of robbery, burglary and resisting arrest.
Sparks, Nevada police have also identified Kellems as the same man that allegedly robbed Nevada State Bank last Friday. Sparks detectives report that the surveillance photo from the robbery matches the photo of a man who had allegedly just escaped from federal custody in the Bay Area. Federal Agents from the US Marshal’s Office San Francisco Division contacted the Sparks Police Department regarding Kellems. They report that Kellems walked away from Federal supervision in the San Francisco bay area. Kellems’ original charge was for Bank Robbery. Agents obtained information that Kellems was in Sparks and specifically in the area of the Nevada State Bank the day of the robbery.
