Greenacres Man Uses Mom As Getaway Driver Following The Robbery Of An Elderly Man

On Tuesday, a 20-year-old Greenacres man allegedly robbed an elderly man and then ran to his getaway car, which was driven by his mother.

According to an article in the Sun Sentinel, security camera footage shows Jesse James Dillen getting out of a white SUV, hitting Arthur Nielding, 78, and then running away. A detective later found the SUV, which had an expired tag and mismatched license plate. Dillen was inside the car, which was being driven by his mom.

The mother told police that she had left home to use a pay phone, and then again before she was pulled over. Dillen told police his mom was with him at the Walmart where he allegedly robbed Nielding. The mother then recanted, and told police her son ran up to her SUV after robbing a man. Dillen was booked into jail where his is being held in lieu of $30,000 bail.
