Bank Robbery Suspect Identified as Man Found Guilty of Robbing It Four Years Ago
We’re sure there’s a story behind this but a man found guilty of robbing the Chase Bank in Eureka on October 9, 2014 was the suspect arrested in this morning’s bank robbery…at…the…same…bank.
This is a press release from the Eureka Police Department. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:
On 11-07-18 at about 9:56 am, the Eureka Police Department dispatch center received a 911 call from a Bank at the 300 block of F Street, regarding a robbery that had just occurred. It was reported that the suspect presented the Teller a note demanding money. The Teller complied and handed the suspect an envelope containing U.S. currency. The suspect then exited the Bank.
Officers responded and immediately located the suspect outside of the entry/exit doors of the Bank. The suspect, identified as Tracey Dontaye Drew (31 years old), was detained without incident. Drew was found to be in possession of the stolen envelope of U.S. currency taken during the robbery. He was positively identified as the suspect by Bank staff.
Drew was ultimately booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on charges of robbery and is being held on $50,000 bail.
This is an ongoing investigation and further details will be released if appropriate.
