SALT LAKE CITY — A serial bank robber who was released from prison about four months ago apparently doesn't know when to quit.
Jeremy Van Duren, 43, faces new federal charges for his alleged 17th and 18th bank robberies. He is accused of holding up Deseret First Credit Union in Murray and Chartway Federal Credit Union in West Jordan last month.
The West Jordan man was charged with 16 robberies in 2004. He pleaded guilty to eight and was sentenced to 130 months in prison and three years' probation. He served another 14 months in prison for violating conditions of his release, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Van Duren was released from prison March 28. He could be sentenced to up 20 years on each of the two new counts if he's found guilty.
