SALINAS — Federal agents have tracked and arrested two wanted fugitives in Salinas.
A few days before the shutdown of a North Salinas neighborhood during a separate incident, federal agents from Missouri flew in to alert the Salinas Police Department that a wanted fugitive was believed to be hiding in Salinas.
Detectives noticed the suspect bore a striking resemblance to a person of interest in a number of strong-armed robberies that had occurred in Salinas — a black male adult who wore a ‘burka’ style mask during his crimes.
Police suspected he was responsible for the January 15th robbery of the Dollar Tree on North Davis, the January 21st robbery of Wendy’s on North Main, the January 27th robbery of the Subway on North Main, the January 28th robbery of the Valero Gas Station, the January 29th robbery of the Subway on North Main, the January 31st robbery of the ACME Chevron on North Main, and the February 7th robbert of the ARCO Gas Station on Main Street.
Agents from the U.S. Marshals Office and FBI along with Salinas PD detectives visited the suspect, 46-year-old Terry Jacobs, and his girlfriend, 26-year-old Jayme Wilson, at their last known address in the 1200 block of Polk Street in Salinas.
The two were found standing in front of their van and taken into custody.
Jacobs was taken to San Jose to answer for the bank robberies in federal court. The Monterey County District Attorney’s Office reviewed the case and found that Wilson was not named in the indictment but had driven the car in each of the seven robberies.
