A 42-year-old man was arrested Tuesday night after two robberies in different Tri-Valley towns.
San Jose resident Matthew Fagan was arrested in Dublin after allegedly holding up the Old Navy store around 7:40 p.m. on Nov. 13. Fagan fled in a gray Chevrolet and was spotted a car matching that description on westbound interstate Highway 580 near Castro Valley, police said. Officers
also recovered the money stolen from Old Navy from the vehicle.
Around 7:10 p.m. that evening, Fagan had held up the Walgreens at 21001 San Ramon Valley Boulevard, before fleeing on foot in an unknown direction. Witnesses said Fagan donned a fake beard and carried a black gun.
No one was hurt in either robbery and Boehrer did not know how much money, if any, had been stolen. San Ramon's K-9 unit was sent to Dublin to help track the suspect.
Fagan is currently in custody in Alameda County and officials from Dublin Police did not return calls for comment. Boehrer said Fagan has not been charged in the San Ramon incident as of Friday afternoon.
In addition, investigators believe he is responsible for recent robberies in other counties. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Dublin police Sgt. Yesenia Sanchez at 833-6682.
