Mark Allen Quinn, 51, was charged in 2012 with two counts of robbing banks. The first charge involved the South Lake Tahoe Bank of America on April 16, 2012. The second count was for the March 12, 2012, robbery of a Morgan Chase bank in El Dorado County.
A third count against Quinn was conspiracy to commit a crime — a third bank robbery. Quinn, the criminal complaint states, conspired with another unknown individual, discussing robbing a bank in the El Dorado Hills Town Center, driving to the Town Center and splitting the money.
Special enhancements included prior counts, with two convictions in Orange County of bank robberies in 1982 and 1984. Other prior offenses listed are assault with a deadly weapon and first-degree burglary.
Quinn remains in custody at the El Dorado County Jail. Quinn filed an appeal to the ruling on March 7.
