Submitted By Lt. Randall Brandt, San Leandro PD
San Leandro Police arrested a suspect on January 15, 2014 for two recent bank robberies: 12/30/13, US Bank, 1585 E. 14th Street, San Leandro and 01/08/14, Bank of the West, 15075 Farnsworth Street, San Leandro. Multiple agencies were involved in this investigation and it would not have been possible without their cooperation and hard work.
On January 8, 2014, SLPD distributed a press release covering a bank robbery that occurred at Bank of the West in San Leandro. Immediately following that robbery, members of our investigative teams started generating and following leads. Our investigators went to San Francisco and conducted surveillance in the San Francisco area. Within hours they located and arrested the suspect, Daniel Hodges, who was known to reside in Antioch.
ÒWe recently identified a spike in bank robberies and we knew we needed to shift some of our resources to address them. Our investigators were able to reveal key leads that lead to his capture without incident.Ó
