DNA testing on discarded clothing at the scene of a bank robbery in Texas has led to the arrest of a suspect in that robbery and two others.
Jazzmyne Dunlap, 21, has been charged with robbing a bank in Arlington last October. She is a suspect in two other bank robberies—one in Fort Worth in March and another in Haltom City in April, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
Police said Dunlap abandoned her clothing in the bushes at a nearby day care center after the Arlington robbery. DNA testing on the clothing matched Dunlap, who had prior convictions for theft of property and auto burglary.
A search for her name on Facebook turned up a profile picture of her allegedly wearing a blue long-sleeved sweatshirt with a distinctive emblem on the front matching the description of the one the suspect was seen wearing at the April robbery in Haltom City.
