An East Palo Alto man pleaded no contest Tuesday to a robbery charge stemming from a January bank robbery, San Mateo County prosecutors said.

Lantz Jackson, 53, also pleaded no contest to charges stemming from a previous narcotics case.

Jackson was facing trial for the Jan. 13 robbery of a San Mateo Credit Union branch at 1735 E. Bayshore Road in East Palo Alto.

Prosecutors said he entered the credit union and handed the teller a note demanding money. The teller complied, and Jackson fled the credit union with $676.

Prosecutors said police found Jackson eight days later with a hat and jacket matching what the suspect was seen on surveillance video wearing during the robbery.

He is scheduled for sentencing on July 8.
