FREMONT – Two suspects were arrested at a Wells Fargo Bank branch in the city’s Irvington district, thwarting an attempted fraudulent transaction on March 28.
Officers responded to a call at 3:35 p.m. from a bank branch located at 40982 Fremont Boulevard, where a woman allegedly tried to withdraw cash from another person’s account.
The woman whom police said initially lied about her identity was detained, along with a man accompanying her. She was later positively identified as Christy Rieken (28) of San Jose, by her fingerprints.
Rieken was arrested for burglary and various identity theft charges, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and providing a false name to police. She’s since been released from custody.
Her companion, 33-year-old Gabriel Rodriguez of San Jose, was arrested for several outstanding warrants. He remains in custody at Santa Rita Jail, ineligible for release on bail.
Rodriguez is charged with vehicle theft, possession of burglary tools, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of an injection device.
