Profane Bank Robber Suspected In Temecula Heist Arrested

Rodney Jeter, 21, of Hemet was nabbed Sept. 27 after police allegedly linked him to two other bank heists.

The man suspected in a Sept. 18 bank robbery in Temecula has been arrested, police are reporting.

Rodney Jeter, 21, of Hemet was nabbed Sept. 27 after police allegedly linked him to two other bank heists.

The arrest came after investigators began comparing notes in other recent bank robberies. Following the Sept. 18 hold-up at Chase Bank located at 29640 Rancho California Road in Temecula, investigators determined the suspect description and method of committing the crime matched information regarding two recent bank robberies in Hemet, according to a report from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

“Police investigators contacted the Hemet Police Department and were able to develop information that identified the suspect in the Temecula bank robbery,” the report stated.

Jeter was arrested by the Hemet Police Department and was booked into the Southwest Detention Center.

According to FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller, the suspect in the Temecula heist used "a lot of profanity" and threatened employees with a gun. The robber allegedly gave a teller a note demanding money, and advised he had an explosive device with him, according to a news release written by Temecula Police Lt. Doug McGrew.

The robber demanded $50 and $100 bills and was carrying a dark bag with a dark strap, Eimiller said, noting he made away with an undisclosed amount of cash. He was seen driving away in an older, silver-colored Chrysler PT Cruiser, McGrew said.

No one was injured during the heist.
