Man charged in Oakland, Berkeley bank robberies has been there before

OAKLAND — Edwin Herold has a thing for certain Mechanics Bank branches, but according to authorities and court documents, it’s not a good one.
The 60-year-old Herold has been charged with robbing two Mechanics Bank branches, one in Oakland on Nov. 16  that he has robbed twice before, and another in Berkeley on Oct. 12 that he robbed in 2010,  according to authorities and the documents.
According to authorities, Herold, who was arrested Nov. 20 in Berkeley, tearfully admitted his involvement in the two recent robberies and said he was remorseful for his actions. He was identified as the suspect in the robberies through video surveillance.
Herold told investigators he has previously worked as a chef and wanted money to possibly start his own restaurant, authorities said.
He is charged with two counts of second degree robbery in the recent bank heists. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Jan. 5.  He is being held in lieu of $255,000 bail at Santa Rita Jail.
The Nov. 16 robbery happened at about 11:06 a.m. at the Oakland Mechanics Bank branch, 1999 Harrison St. A  teller  was given a note that demanded $25,000 and said no one would get hurt. But the suspect got less than $100 and fled on foot.
According to court documents and prior media accounts, Herold robbed the same branch in March of 2012 and March of 2010.
In the Oct. 12 robbery of the Berkeley Mechanics Bank branch  2301 Shattuck Ave., he is accused of using a demand note to make off with $2,500.
He robbed the same branch in January 2010, authorities confirmed .
Herold has been incarcerated in the prior robberies, authorities confirmed.
