Suspect Charged In Bank Heist

May 08, 1991

Federal agents arrested a Millersville man yesterday in the Marley Station parking lot, and charged him in connection with the April 10 hold-up of Brooklyn Park's Vermont Savings Association.

David Lee Hebb, 30, of the 1600 block of Crucible Court also is suspected in five other county bank robberies.

The FBI's Baltimore office spokesman, James Dearborn, said agentswere placed on Hebb's trail by a tip from an Anne Arundel County police officer who had taken down the license number of "a suspicious tan Ford Escort" seen in the Vermont Savings parking lot before the robbery. The car was later traced to Hebb.

Dearborn said Hebb also fits the description given by witnesses and recorded on camera in five other robberies in the county -- the Dec. 4 and Dec. 14 robberies of Chevy Chase Savings at 7937 Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie; the Jan. 9 and Feb. 7 robberies of Severna Park's Maryland National Bank; and the Feb. 28 robbery of the same Vermont Savings Association.

"A white man, with a similar skinny build as Hebb, who wore sunglasses andeither a baseball cap or a knit hat was involved in each of these pairs of robberies," Dearborn said.

The arrest occurred without incident at 12:15 p.m. yesterday.

Later yesterday, U.S. Magistrate Daniel Klein ordered Hebb to be held under 24-hour surveillance at the Volunteers of America work-release center pending his May 28 federal trial.
