Daly City police identify fourth man involved in bank robbery

DALY CITY (BCN) — A fourth man has been identified as a suspect who helped three others rob a Daly City bank at gunpoint last month, according to police.

Police arrested Deon Taylor, 50, at his Vallejo home on Oct. 11 on suspicion of robbery, being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition, conspiracy to commit a crime and having two prior felony convictions, according to Daly City police Sgt. Ron Harrison.

Taylor remains in custody on $600,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in San Mateo County Superior Court at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday for arraignment.

Police had already arrested three other men in connection with the Sept. 15 robbery at the First National Bank of Northern California at 6600 Mission St.

Last month, Daniel Velazquez-Cordero, 42, and Gabriel Mosby, 57, pleaded not guilty to robbery and gun possession charges for their role in the robbery, San Mateo County prosecutors said. They’re expected back in court on Nov. 18 for a preliminary hearing, prosecutors said.

A third man, Leroy Wilson, 49, who is also facing drug charges, posted bail following his arrest and has not yet entered a plea. He will appear in court for his initial felony arraignment next Monday, prosecutors said.

Just before the Sept. 15 robbery, Mosby had allegedly entered the bank and stayed there for about 25 minutes, apparently casing the location, according to the district attorney’s office.

Armed with a semiautomatic handgun and wearing masks, Velazquez-Cordero and an unidentified man, later revealed to be Taylor, then walked into the bank and demanded money from both customers and bank
employees, prosecutors said.

The pair took $11,195 from teller drawers and $500 in cash from customers, who also had credit cards stolen. They then fled in a gold Cadillac, which was registered to Wilson, with Mosby riding in the passenger
seat of the car, according to the district attorney’s office.

Three days later, police were able to track Wilson down in Vallejo after his girlfriend was discovered using the stolen credit cards taken from the bank customers, prosecutors said.

During his arrest, officers found Wilson with cash taken from the bank in his pocket, as well as a .22-caliber handgun and methamphetamine and heroin for sale, according to prosecutors.

After receiving a tip, officers located Mosby and Velazquez-Cordero on Sept. 29 at a Fairfield motel, where the gold Cadillac they used in the robbery had been parked, prosecutors said.
