According to the Santee Patch, George Adams was taken into custody at 4:50 p.m. near
Gorge Road. According to the Santee Sheriff’s
Department, he was wearing the same hat and driving the exact same car
seen in the surveillance photos. George Adams was being held in San Diego
Central Jail on a Santee Bail Bonds of $400,000 pending arraignment, scheduled
for sometime Friday afternoon at the El Cajon Superior Courthouse. He must post
a Santee Bail Bonds to get released.
The utsandiego.com said, late Wednesday, the Santee Sheriff’s Department asked the community to help identify the suspect from several photos captured from an ATM. Shortly after, a woman called the Santee Sheriff’s Department who was looking on Facebook. She told the officers she remembers seeing
Adams outside a local restaurant offering to perform repairs
on cars. George Adams gave his name and number to the woman and she kept
it. Detectives set up a meeting with Adams and arrested him and set the Santee bail bonds at
The first robbery was reported just before 11 p.m. on Jan. 16 2013, when a gunman forced a customer using the Mission Federal Credit Union ATM near
Center Parkway to withdraw the maximum amount. He then
grabbed the money and took off.
About five days later, the suspect approached another woman at the same ATM and placed his hand in the waistband of his pants and said he had a weapon. However, the victim ran to her car and the suspect drove away empty-handed, according to the Santee Sheriff’s Department.
This past Monday, the suspect approached a man at the Wells Fargo ATM near
2398 Jamacha Road
outside Santee and demanded money, sheriff’s
officials said. This time he grabbed the money and drove off.
He will go through the San Diego booking and arrest process and needs to post a Santee Bail Bonds in order to be release from jail. However, this Santee Bail Bond is set at $400,000 and he might end up waiting for a bail bond review hearing. These are serious crimes and robberies like this put many people at risk.
