Jarrell David Dent was taken into custody in the vicinity of 638 Cedar Street in San Marcos after investigators trailed him using a tracking device from the bank.
According to the criminal complaint, Dent entered the credit union around 9:41 a.m. wearing a black motorcycle helmet with a full, tinted face visor; black gloves; a gray sweatshirt and a black packpack. He brandished what appeared to be a black handgun and demanded money from three different tellers.
Each teller provided cash that contained a tracking device, the complaint continued. After he fled the credit union, Dent allegedly discovered two of the devices and quickly discarded them, but the third device was traced by investigators to the Cedar Street address.
Dent was spotted there exiting a white Chevrolet Malibu, later discovered to be stolen out of Arizona on Tuesday, according to the complaint.
In addition to the garb worn during the robbery, investigators allege loose cash was found in the vehicle.
A black “airsoft” handgun was also discovered, according to investigators.
Dent was taken into custody without incident and charged with one count of bank robbery.
