Eureka Police investigating Chase Bank robbery
EUREKA - The Police Department is investigating an incident that took place Thursday morning at Chase Bank on F Street.
The officers were called to the scene just after 11 where they saw the robber running with a garbage bag full of money. The subject, identified as Tracey Drew Jr., ditched the bag near Broadway and Fourth Street.
Officers were able to stop him shortly after, near Third Street, and take him into custody. Drew is 27 years old and from Sacramento. No weapons were involved in the robbery and all money stolen has been returned.
“He wasn't stopping on his own. Enough officers got him cornered and as he ran through the loading dock at this business and the motorcycle officer arrived on scene and another officer arrived and we were able to corner him,” Captain Tony Zanotti with the Eureka Police Department said.
