BPD arrest bank robber after chase

 

Burleson police on Saturday afternoon arrested a Fort Worth man in connection with a robbery that happened just before 1 p.m. at Educational Employees Credit Union on Alsbury Boulevard.

Bentley Mark Jenkins, 45, was arrested following a car and foot chase and held in the Johnson County Jail. He was released Wednesday morning, a sheriff’s department spokesperson said. The spokesperson was unable to verify whether Jenkins was released on bond, and if so, what that bond was.

Witnesses told police on Saturday that a black male entered the EECU bank shortly before it closed at 1 p.m., handing the teller a note demanding cash. Witnesses also told police that after he got the money, the suspect left the scene in a gray 2002 Mitsubishi, driving down Alsbury Boulevard toward Interstate 35W.

Officers quickly located a vehicle matching that description on I-35W at Renfro Street. But the driver, identified later as Jenkins, ran from police, exiting at Bethesda Road. He continued south on Burleson Boulevard — the I-35 service road — until turning east on Farm-to-Market Road 917.

Jenkins crashed his car into a culvert in the 7200 block of FM 917, then climbed out of the car and fled from police on foot before being apprehended.
