Jenkins had a gun when he held up Security National Bank, 1756 N. Limestone St., then fled with a bag of the bank’s money in a vehicle at a high rate of speed with Springfield officers in pursuit.

Jenkins crashed in the area of Interstate 675 and fled on foot, but not before he dropped the money bag. All the money was recovered, Springfield police Lt. Matthew Buynak said, and a gun was reportedly recovered from the vehicle.



Neighbors in the Medway area alerted deputies that Jenkins was knocking on doors looking for a ride. A short time later deputies found him riding in someone else’s car in the 11000 block of Lower Valley Pike, Buynak said.

He was arrested and booked into the Clark County Jail.

Bond is $150,000 for Jenkins, who pleaded not guilty Monday to aggravated robbery and fleeing and eluding during his arraignment in Clark County Municipal Court.

During the pursuit and search, the ramp from eastbound Interstate 70 to southbound Interstate 675 was closed.

Multiple agencies were involved in the search, including the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Huber Heights Police Department, Clark County Sheriff’s Office and Springfield Police Division.
