DNA, Facebook pic lead to robbery suspect

FORT WORTH, Texas, June 29 (UPI) -- Texas police said an alleged robber was arrested thanks to DNA from clothes abandoned after a crime and a Facebook photo of her in clothes from another robbery.

Fort Worth police working with the FBI said Jazzmyne Dunlap, 21, handed a threatening note to a teller at the Wells Fargo bank on Brown Boulevard in Arlington in October and abandoned her clothes in the bushes at a nearby daycare after fleeing the bank with an unspecified amount of cash, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Tuesday.

Investigators said Dunlap also is suspected in bank robberies March 10 at the BBVA Compass Bank in Fort Worth and April 19 at a Wells Fargo bank in Haltom City.

DNA testing from the abandoned clothing matched Dunlap, who had previous convictions for theft of property and auto burglary, and a search for her name on Facebook turned up a profile picture of the suspect allegedly wearing clothing from the April 19 robbery, police said.

Dunlap was arrested May 31 and indicted June 15 on a count of bank robbery in the April 19 holdup.
