SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – A 38-year-old Banning man who held up Security Bank and Schools First Credit Union banks in Redlands has been convicted.

 

On May 8, a jury found Jason Deiner guilty of five counts of Second Degree Robbery, one count of Second Degree Burglary, one count of Second Degree Commercial Burglary, and one count of Evading an Officer, Willful Disregard. On May 17, the court found true two prior strikes. Deiner faces 25 years to life in prison when sentenced June 22, 2018 at the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court.

 

According to Deputy District Attorney Kristofer Baughman, who prosecuted the case, in Dec. 2013, Deiner entered the Security Bank in Redlands with a bandana over his face. He was wearing a black hat, black jacket, blue jeans, white latex gloves and work boots.

 

“The defendant was holding a black handgun and a peach-colored pillow case as he approached a bank employee, demanding money,” said Deputy District Attorney Kristofer Baughman. “The employee then went to various tellers to get cash to put in the pillowcase.”

 

The following month, Deiner robbed the SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union in Rancho Cucamonga, wearing the same clothing and using the same pillow case and weapon.

 

After the second robbery, officers with the Ontario Police Department located the suspect’s vehicle. Deiner attempted to evade the officers, but he was quickly apprehended. There was a pillow case inside the vehicle containing the $1,100 stolen from the bank and a black BB gun.
