He entered the bank and made his way to the teller line with a note which demaned money. He also informed the teller that he was carrying a gun. jarred ran off with no money completly empty-handed after a a few minutes.
It wasn’t until November when police got new leads which led them to Schmittle’s house in Lake Elsinore where he was arrested.
