Suspect in ATM thefts

A man suspected of robbing three ATM machines in Santee was arrested Wednesday after a local resident  recognized the suspect from a surveillance camera picture posted on the sheriff’s department Facebook page.

George Adams, 23, was booked into jail on suspicion of four counts of robbery following his arrest  by deputies from the Santee station who received a tip from the Facebook reader.

The tipster said she recognized Adams as the man who gave her his name and phone number outside a local restaurant , where he was soliciting patrons repair their cars.

Using that information, detectives set up a meeting with the man, who showed up wearing the same cap and driving the same car seen in the surveillance photos.

The sheriff’s department welcomes the public to follow them on (click on the following)  Facebook, Twitter and Nixle.
