Citibank Robbery Suspect Arrested in San Francisco

Jeremiah C. Martin is accused of walking in to a Citibank and demanding cash from a teller on Thursday.

After a 48-hour investigation, San Rafael police arrested a San Francisco man on suspicion of robbing a Citibank in downtown San Rafael Thursday afternoon, according to police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher.

Jeremiah C. Martin, 36, was booked in Marin County Jail on charges of robbery, as well as two outstanding warrants –one for possession of stolen property and the other for violating probation for dangerous drugs in Oregon. He is being held in lieu of $75,000.

Just before 5 p.m. on Dec. 22, a suspect walked in to Citibank on Third Street, went directly to a teller and demanded cash. No weapon was seen and he fled on foot, Rohrbahcer said.

The suspect was identified as Martin, and he was arrested at 10 p.m. Saturday at his apartment on Sixth Street in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San  Francisco.

This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about this case can call San Rafael Police at 415.485.3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1.800.222.TIPS (8477). This phone number accommodates all languages.  Callers can remain anonymous.

      They didn't mention that they had the FED'S help,San Francisco police actually arrested him after beating the streets for him, and the FED's identified him. So how is SRPD getting credit? If SRPD wasn't helped they'd still be looking and this kid would be out! They also had the description wrong, so if there was some reward for identifying him SRPD made it impossible to call him in. So yeah great job.... you did awesome sitting on your ars eating your donuts, not bothering to put out a correct profile to the public and letting the Feds and S.F.P.D do your job. Tax payer money well spent!
