The San Jose Police Department, Campbell Police Department, and the Milpitas Police Department recently worked together to solve a series of four bank robberies which began on 09-20-13 and concluded on 12-04-13. The investigation involved bank robberies at the following locations:
Wells Fargo Bank located in the 500 block of Capitol Ave in San Jose on 09-20-13
Comerica Bank located in the 5600 block of Silver Creek Valley Road, San Jose on 11-15-13
First Bank located in the 700 block of E. Campbell Ave, Campbell on 11-27-13
Comerica Bank located in the 1200 block of S. Park Victoria Ave, Milpitas on 12-04-13
The investigation revealed that the males responsible for the four bank robberies were Oscar Radillo and Alvaro Hernandez Santillan, who are cousins. After the string of robberies, suspect Radillo fled California and moved to the State of Indiana while Santillan stayed local.
In a tactically coordinated operation conducted on December 20, 2013, members of SJPD Robbery Unit, SJPD Covert Response Unit and the US Marshals arrested suspects Radillo and Santillan without incident. Suspect Radillo was booked into Sullivan County, Indiana and is currently awaiting extradition back to California to face robbery charges. Suspect Hernandez was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for similar charges.
