April 12, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Marco Rubio-Baez

A Redwood City bank robbery suspect nabbed after the teller followed him outside and gave police updates from his cellphone will stand trial.

Marco Antonio Rubio-Baez, 27, had pleaded not guilty to drug and robbery charges but was held to answer on all charges yesterday after a judge found sufficient evidence.

The preliminary hearing came after Rubio-Baez first asked to act as his own attorney and then withdrew the request. He returns to court with his appointed attorney April 25 to enter a Superior Court plea and possibly set a trial date.

Rubio-Baez is accused of stealing $4,000 from the First Republic Bank on the 700 block of El Camino Real and prosecutors say he later confessed to taking the money for rent, cellphone bills and to send back to his mother in Mexico.

After the man later identified as Rubio-Baez walked into the bank April 1 and walked out with the bag of cash he demanded, the teller triggered the alarm and followed the suspect outside he building. Using his cellphone, the teller gave police updates on the suspect's location and Rubio-Baez was apprehended near Sequoia Station. Redwood City police reported finding the money and a small bag of methamphetamine.

Rubio-Baez remains in custody on $100,000 bail.
