    DANVILLE -- Worried that banks aren't watching your money anymore? At least one doesn't deserve such flak.

    A tip from a US Bank employee helped police arrest a 24-year-old Oakland woman on Tuesday, Danville police Chief Steve Simpkins said in a release.

    Robbie Smith was being held in the West County Jail in Richmond on $70,000. She is expected to be charged with burglary, forgery and identity theft, Det. Brian Sliger said.

    Police were contacted by the bank after a customer reported that one of his checks was stolen in San Lorenzo, Simpkins said in the release. The check was deposited later and cash was withdrawn from a Danville bank. The transactions led police to Smith's home, where she was arrested after police discovered stolen property, Simpkins said.
