On June 30, 2015, the jury found 28-year-old Tracey Dontaye Drew guilty of robbery, a felony, and resisting a peace officer, a misdemeanor.
On October 9, 2014 the defendant entered the Eureka Chase Bank while concealing his identity by covering himself with a trash bag and face mask. Mr. Drew announced the robbery and threatened to kill anyone who called the police. He left the bank with over $10,000 but was apprehended by Eureka Police Officers after a short pursuit.

The case was tried by Deputy District Attorney Brie Bennett, with assistance from District Attorney Investigator Jack Bernstein. The defendant was represented at trial by Deputy Public Defender Owen Tipps. Judge Joyce Hinrichs presided over the nine-day trial.

In addition to bank employees present during the robbery, testimony was given by six members of the Eureka Police Department: Detectives John Gordon and Todd Wilcox, retired Captain Anthony Zanotti, Officers Tim Jones, Kyle Miyamura and Beau Southwell.

Judge Hinrichs will sentence the defendant on July 28, 2015. The maximum sentence for these crimes is five years in prison.
