Plan unravels quickly for man passing stolen check
On Friday, September 25 just before 5 p.m., 36-year-old Salome Rodriguez casually walked into the Chase bank, located on the 800 block of south Indian Hill, to allegedly cash a stolen check. The Pomona resident’s plan quickly unraveled when the teller contacted the victim of the theft, who confirmed it was stolen. When officers arrived on the scene, Mr. Rodriguez confessed to having a meth pipe in his pocket, according to Detective Lieutenant Mike Ciszek. Officers also found two more stolen checks and a wallet belonging to a second victim. It gets worse from there: Mr. Rodriguez was wanted in San Bernardino County for allegedly stealing a trailer with $40,000 worth of belongings, including the checks, from the first victim. Mr. Rodriguez was transferred to San Bernardino County to face charges.
