May 13, 2011

A Burbank man pleaded not guilty this week to robbing a bank inside Pavilions Market last month.

Jimmy Barbarino, 44, was arrested after getting in a traffic accident May 6 in Glendale, said Burbank Sgt. John Pfrommer.

A warrant was out for Barbarino’s arrest after he was identified as a suspect in the May 2 bank robbery.

He is being held in lieu of $90,000 and is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing May 23 in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Barbarino allegedly told the bank teller inside the grocery store at 1110 W. Alameda Ave. that he had a handgun inside his black backpack when he demanded the cash. The employees, fearing for their safety, handed over the cash, said Burbank Police Sgt. Robert Quesada.
