Police arrested a Santa Clara man and charged him with five South Bay bank robberies, including last week's robbery of the Heritage Bank of Commerce, located at 175 E. El Camino Real.
Cyrus Cesar Wietecha, 32, of Santa Clara is suspected of robbing the Mountain View bank last Thursday (Sept. 16), according to Detective Brian Eagan of the Mountain View Police Department. Eagan said the man is also suspected of committing four other bank robberies in San Jose and Santa Clara.
Jaime Garrett, a spokeswoman for the police department, said the man entered the bank shortly before 9:30 a.m. and displayed a note to a teller. Police were notified of the robbery by silent alarm.
Eagan said police departments in Santa Clara and Sunnyvale helped Mountain View police track down Wietecha.
