San Rafael, CA – August 29, 2013.  On Wednesday, August 28, 2013, San Rafael Detectives learned the identity of a female suspect wanted for depositing stolen checks into ATM’s in San Rafael and Mill Valley.   Julian Nina Bagley, 28, of San Rafael was located and arrested for numerous counts of burglary, possession of stolen property, forgery, endorsing stolen checks, identity theft, petty theft and possession of narcotics.

Following several weeks of investigation, Bagley was identified when ATM photos of her depositing stolen checks were made public.  A SRPD officer identified her along with a citizen who called in to report her identity.

July 22, 2013, Bagley deposits fraudulent checks into ATM’s in San Rafael and Mill Valley where her photo is taken.
