News Release
Suspected Three Time Bank Robber Arrested - 09/14/21

The FBI has filed a federal criminal complaint charging Justin David Jackley, age 31, with three counts of bank robbery. Jackley made his initial appearance before a U.S. Magistrate Judge today on those charges. The judge ordered Jackley detained pending further court proceedings.

Milwaukie Police Department officers arrested Jackley on Wednesday, September 8, 2021, following a robbery at the Bank of the West branch located at 11050 SE McLoughlin Boulevard. According to the criminal complaint, FBI agents believe Jackley is responsible for two previous robberies as well:

  • August 23, 2021 – Bank of America branch located at 9171 SE 82nd Avenue, Portland
  • September 4, 2021 – OnPoint Community Credit Union located at 8085 SE 13th Avenue, Portland

A criminal complaint is only an accusation of a crime, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Oregon Bank Robbery Stats & Trends

While the overall number of bank robberies in Oregon has been low in 2021, there has been a noticeable increase in just the past few months.

Of concern to investigators are reports that some suspected bank robbers are drawn to this crime because they are being told that bank robberies that do not involve physical violence or which remain under a certain loss amount are often not prosecuted, particularly at the federal level.

“Bank robbery is a violent crime. Period. Whether you show a weapon, threaten a weapon, or make criminal demands, there is an impact on the victim. Tellers often experience fear and on-going trauma from the experience. If you choose to commit a bank robbery, we will investigate and ensure that victims can see justice done,” said Kieran L. Ramsey, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Oregon.

If you have information about a bank robbery or any other federal crime, report it to 1-800-CALL-FBI or online at tips.fbi.gov.
