San Leandro police have arrested a suspect they believe committed two recent bank robberies but are seeking the public’s help in finding the suspect in another bank robbery on Tuesday.Police said 38-year-old Daniel Hodges of Antioch is being held on suspicion that he robbed the U.S. Bank at 1585 14th St. on Dec. 30 and the Bank of the West branch at 15075 Farnsworth St. on Jan. 8. Police said that after they publicized the Jan. 8 robbery they developed information that Hodges was in San Francisco and were able to arrest him there later that day.
Lt. Randall Brandt said, “Our investigators were able to reveal key leads that led to his capture without incident.”Brandt said Hodges also is a suspect in multiple other robberies and consequently aren’t releasing his photograph because there’s still an active investigation.San Leandro police also are seeking the public’s help in finding the suspect in a robbery at the Bank of America branch at 1925 Marina Blvd. at about 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
Police said the suspect entered the bank armed with a handgun, demanded money and the bank’s staff cooperated by handing over cash.The suspect fled in an unknown direction, according to police.Authorities describe the suspect as a black man about 25 years old who is about 6 feet tall and was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and jeans.
Brandt said, “We are hoping someone in our community recognizes the suspect” but people shouldn’t try to contact him because he’s considered to be armed and dangerous.
