An 18-year-old man suspected of robbing a person at an ATM machine at gunpoint earlier this summer in Hercules was arrested at his workplace in Richmond on Thursday, police said. Around 4:40 a.m. on July 22, a Hercules resident at a Wells Fargo ATM located at 1572 Sycamore Ave. in Hercules was approached by a man with a gun who demanded money, according to police.
The victim dropped his wallet and the suspect allegedly picked it up and fled the area, police said. Officers later discovered that someone attempted to use two of the victim’s debit cards multiple times at two different banks on the same day as the robbery. That led officers to the suspect, police said. At about 7 a.m. on Thursday, officers went to a residence in the 800 block of Valley Run in Hercules with an arrest warrant for 18-year-old Cornell Miller and a search warrant for his home.
Miller was not at his home, but officers searched his residence and found evidence linked to the robbery, police said. Officers then went to Miller’s workplace at a Walmart in Richmond, police said. Allegedly when Miller saw police at his workplace he fled on foot. He was taken into custody after a short chase, police said. He was booked at the Martinez Detention Facility on robbery charges and remains in custody on $280,000 bail, according to police.
