Jason Deiner, 38, was convicted by a jury May 8 on five counts of second-degree robbery and one count each of second-degree burglary, second-degree commercial burglary and evading an officer. The two prior serious felony strikes were affirmed by San Bernardino County Superior Court Judge Dan Detienne on May 17.
Deiner, who was arrested in 2014,  faces sentencing June 22 in Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court.
Deputy District Attorney Kristofer Baughman said in December 2013 Deiner went into the the Security Bank in Redlands with a bandana over his face, wearing a black hat, black jacket, blue jeans, white latex gloves and work boots.
“The defendant was holding a black handgun and a peach-colored pillow case as he approached a bank employee, demanding money,”  Baughman, who prosecuted the case, said in a news release. “The employee then went to various tellers to get cash to put in the pillowcase.”
In January 2014, Deiner used the same clothing, pillow case and weapon when he robbed the SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union in Rancho Cucamonga, Baughman said
Ontario Police officers spotted his vehicle after the second robbery, and Deiner was arrested after he tried to evade police. Inside the vehicle they found a pillow case with the stolen $1,100, and a black BB gun, the release said.
