Redwood City man sentenced to jail, probation for bank robbery

Redwood City man sentenced

to jail, probation for bank robbery

A Redwood City man who pleaded no contest to felony robbery in connection with a bank robbery was sentenced Friday to one year in jail and three years of supervised probation, according to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Marco Antonio Rubio-Baez, 27, was also ordered to enter a drug treatment program as part of his probation, and the jail sentence can be modified to a residential drug treatment program, Wagstaffe said.

Rubio-Baez has already served around seven months in county jail in connection with the April 1 robbery, Wagstaffe said.

Prosecutors said Rubio-Baez walked into the First Republic Bank on the 700 block of El Camino Real in Redwood City and handed a teller a note demanding money.

The note said the teller had five minutes to comply, but noted that he did not plan to hurt the teller, prosecutors said.

The teller handed over $4,000 in a bag, but then triggered an alarm and followed the suspect, advising police of his location with a cellphone.

Police arrested Rubio-Baez at the north entrance to Sequoia Station shopping center, and recovered the money and a small bag of methamphetamine, prosecutors said.
