Downtown San Mateo bank robber arrested
October 09, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

San Mateo police, with help from Burlingame officers, announced the arrest of a man suspected of robbing the downtown Wells Fargo Bank last week with a “bomb-like” device.

The man, identified as 52-year-old transient Gerald Myer, was arrested after a medical call for an intoxicated woman at the Vagabond Inn in Burlingame just before 5 p.m. Monday. A Burlingame officer recognized that Myer matched the description of the bank robber and found a hat and a wig that linked him to the crime. He was booked into San Mateo County Jail on bank robbery and related charges, according to police.

In last week’s incident, it was reported that a man took an undisclosed amount of cash from a teller at the bank at 100 E. Fourth Ave. at around noon Tuesday, Oct. 1. He was reported to have been holding what appeared to be a silver detonating device with a red button and was last seen on foot on San Mateo Drive toward Central Park. He was also wearing what appeared to be a blond wig with a ponytail attached and a photo was released of him checking his disguise in the window of another business, according to police.
