    A man is being held on $500,000 bail in Santa Clara County Jail in  connection with the July robbery of a San Jose bank, police said.

    At about 3:30 p.m. on July 28, a man held up a Bank of the West  branch at 965 S. De Anza Blvd., and police reached out to the public for help  in identifying the robber.

    The department released images captured by bank surveillance  cameras and received information that pointed to 56-year-old John Robert  Alexander, according to police.

    Investigators determined that Alexander was a transient and living  out of his car, police said. They obtained a warrant for his arrest and  distributed a bulletin to law enforcement agencies throughout the region.

    Mono County sheriff's deputies on patrol located Alexander's  pickup truck and arrested him.

    He was initially booked into Mono County Jail before being  transferred to Santa Clara County on Thursday.

    Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact San  Jose police Detective Adam Hutson at (408) 277-4166, by e-mail at  adam.hutson@sanjoseca.gov, or anonymously by calling the Silicon Valley Crime  Stoppers at (408) 947-7867.
