Man arrested for two Burlingame bank robberies
July 25, 2014, 05:00 AM

A San Mateo man was arrested in San Francisco last weekend for robbing the Bank of America in Burlingame two times, according to Burlingame police.

Mitchell Garcia, 58, is suspected of robbing the bank on El Camino Real April 24, 2013, then again on July 5, 2014. During the first robbery, the suspect displayed what appeared to be the butt of a handgun from the front waistband of his pants. During the second robbery, the suspect displayed what he claimed to be an explosive device, according to police.

Burlingame police detectives were able to identify Garcia as the suspect in both robberies and obtained a $200,000 warrant for his arrest. Officers from the San Francisco Police Department were able to locate and arrest Garcia at a residential hotel in San Francisco’s Mission Terrace neighborhood after attempts to locate Garcia at his San Mateo residence were unsuccessful, according to police.
