Man pleads guilty to bank robbery

March 24, 1995|By Darren M. Allen | Darren M. Allen,Sun Staff Writer

A Westminster man pleaded guilty yesterday to the armed robbery of Fairfax Savings Bank in 140 Village Shopping Center in May, one of four bank holdups in Carroll last year.

Anthony Wayne Nunn will get a maximum of five years in prison as part of his plea bargain when he is sentenced May 4 by Circuit Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr.

In return for the guilty plea, prosecutors dropped other charges that included felony theft, use of a handgun in the commission of a felony and robbery.

Nunn, 25, of the first block of Charles St. was arrested seven hours after he walked into the bank, displayed a pellet gun and fled with more than $3,500. Westminster police and FBI agents ** found him at his home and recovered the gloves, hat and weapon he used in the robbery.

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 dropped the money when a dye pack exploded in it.

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

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

Nunn apparently had financial difficulties at the time of the robbery, court records say.

Four banks were robbed last year in Carroll, one more than in 1993.
