Union City Police Department learned of a series of armed robberies that occurred at Payless Shoe stores in the Cities of San Jose and Newark. The suspect in both of the armed robberies was described as a Hispanic male adult, wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, black baseball cap, and black sunglasses. The suspect was described as being in possession of a silver handgun. Sgt. Mendez decided to park his vehicle near the Union City Payless Shoe store (on Dyer Street) in an attempt to prevent any additional robberies.
At 8:20 p.m., Sergeant Mendez noticed a male that matched the description of the suspect from the armed robberies. Officers contacted Jose Pulido-Zamora (Hayward resident) a short distance from the Payless Shoe store. Mr. Pulido-Zamora provided a false name to the Officers and said he did not have any identification. Officers were able to identify Mr. Pulido-Zamora and found him to have an active felony warrant for burglary. A search of Mr. Pulido-Zamora and his vehicle led to the recovery of three empty firearm holsters, narcotics, marijuana, and property stolen from two separate residential burglaries in Mountain View. Mr. Pulido-Zamora was arrested and additional follow up is being conducted in an attempt to determine if he had any involvement in the listed armed robberies.
