Westminster man is arrested in bank robbery

May 26, 1994|By Bill Talbott | Bill Talbott,Sun Staff Writer

Westminster police and FBI agents arrested a 24-year-old man yesterday and charged him in the armed robbery of Fairfax Savings Bank in the 140 Village Shopping Center seven hours earlier.

Police identified the suspect as Anthony Wayne Nunn of the first block of S. Charles St.

Investigators said they recovered the gloves, hat and handgun used in the robbery when they made the arrest.

Police said the robber entered the bank about 9:15 a.m., pointed a handgun at a teller and demanded money. The teller gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash in a plastic bag and the man fled.

Investigators traced the path they thought the robber had taken when he fled and found the money on the ground behind the bank. They said he apparently ditched the money when a dye pack exploded.

Officers said the robber was wearing a nylon stocking over his face, but his image was captured on the bank's camera.

Westminster detectives examined the photo and received information from an FBI agent that the man had been seen recently allegedly casing another bank in Baltimore County.

A license plate number furnished by the FBI led investigators to the house on Charles Street, where Mr. Nunn was arrested, police said.
