The Salmon Creek man who allegedly robbed two local banks and led police on a 90-minute chase in June is back in Clark County.

Brent Woodall, 29, a former bodybuilder and fitness trainer was booked in the Clark County Jail on Tuesday, according to the online jail roster.

Police officers captured him in north Portland after pinning him between a patrol car and a minivan.

Woodall pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree robbery in Multnomah County Circuit Court on July 3.

In Clark County, Woodall is accused of robbing Riverview Community Bank in Hazel Dell and the Bank of America on Auto Mall Drive on the afternoon of June 20 — his 29th birthday. He also is accused of several attempted carjackings and a successful one, and a hit-and-run crash while fleeing from police.

He is expected to make his first appearance in Clark County Superior Court later this week.
