Man Arrested for Alleged Robbery, Attempted Robbery in Three Separate Incidents in Two Days
A man has been arrested on suspicion of robbery and attempted robbery in connection to three separate incidents in San Francisco.
In a media release via Facebook, San Francisco police identified 36-year-old Tracey Drew as the primary suspect in three alleged incidents over the course of two days, two on January 3 — on the 1900 block of Union Street and the 3600 block of Geary Boulevard, respectively — and another on January 4, on the 300 block of Folsom Street.
All three locations were banks.
Police say all three incidents fit the same M.O. — the suspect would allegedly enter the bank, approach an employee, and demand money. The suspect was only able to obtain money on one of the three occasions, police said.
In the third incident, on the afternoon January 4, police arrived on the scene while the crime was still in progress and arrested the suspect, later identified as Drew.
Drew was booked at the San Francisco County jail on suspicion of robbery, second-degree burglary, kidnapping for robbery, and second-degree attempted robbery.
Drew is reportedly under investigation for a fourth alleged bank robbery that occurred outside San Francisco County, police said.
