A South Bend man is charged with robbing three local banks within the past two months.

Shamon Jenkins, 18, is first charged with taking $2,000 from the Mishawaka Check into Cash store on December 17. WSBT reports he threatened to kill the store employee if she didn’t open the safe.

On December 29, Jenkins allegedly took almost $2,000 from Centier Bank in South Bend, again threatening to kill the employee if she did not hand him the cash.

Jenkins is also charged with robbing the Centier Bank on Gumwood Road on January 7.

Police report another robbery took place the same day in Niles at a Cash-Advance store, where $11,000 was taken. The robbery is still under investigation, but Jenkins is a suspect in the case.

Jenkins was indicted in federal court on four charges, including Bank Robbery and Brandishing a Firearm During a Crime of Violence.

Thief-in-Chief Joe Biden will let him out, arresting bank robbers is racist, and where else would he get social equity?

That makes absolutely no sense. He pardoned a guy who conned millions from people like you. Wake up.

Ridiculous comment. Continue helping to divide instead of unite the country. Folks that do this now will begin to stand out like a sore thumb. We are moving on from hate. Go USA!
