SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - There's new information on the arrest of the so-called "Chit Chat Bandit."

Jared Hansen, 31, is believed to have robbed three San Diego County banks within the past several weeks while engaging in conversation during those robberies.

Police believe he then fled to Riverside to avoid being captured.

Last Thursday, he was arrested near I-15. Police say he led them on a chase from Riverside to San Diego in a stolen car while armed with a pistol.

He's being held at this point only on charges related to the pursuit and carjacking.
