On July 9, 2013 at approximately 3:20PM, the suspect (pictured above) entered a bank located on the 400 block of Castro Street and obtained a cash advance using a victim’s credit card. She then proceeded to another bank located on the 300 block of San Antonio Road and attempted to obtain another cash advance using a different credit card belonging to the same victim. However, an alert teller became suspicious and did not complete the transaction. The suspect ended up fleeing the scene in an unknown direction of travel. It was later discovered the victim had their wallet stolen from a location in downtown Mountain View. Investigative leads that have been received thus far indicate the suspect may also be involved in similar incidents that have taken place in Southern California.
