Marion Bank Robbery Suspect Killed in California Heist

FONTANA, Calif. – A man wanted in a downstate Illinois bank robbery has been shot dead in California during another heist.

The Marion Police Department reports they were able to identify 45-year-old Travis Tarrants and connect him to a March bank robbery, thanks to a Facebook post that showed a truck used in the California robbery.

Bloomington, Indiana police arrested Tarrants and charged him with a November robbery, but he was released on his own recognizance, meaning he didn’t have to post bail and only had to sign a written promise to appear in court.
