On December 2 at about 11 a.m.
Downtown officers were on patrol when they saw a car parked in a red zone next to the Bank of America (1301 4th St.). When the officers parked behind the vehicle to speak to the occupants, the vehicle sped away. The officers turned on their lights and sirens and the vehicle pulled over. When they approached the vehicle, they could smell a strong odor of marijuana. The officers asked the driver and passenger to exit their car and they searched them both. They found several debit cards with different names and hand written pin codes on the rear. Among the cards was approximately $1,100 in cash ($20 bills) and ATM receipts. The driver said the different ATM cards belonged to his friends and they gave him permission to take out their money. The driver was arrested for possession of access cards without the owner’s consent. Carlos Raul Serrano, 34, had bail set at $50,000.
