April 18, 1996|By Richard Irwin | Richard Irwin,SUN STAFF

A man sought in connection with several area bank robberies over the past month was arrested yesterday in Northwest Baltimore, a city police spokeswoman said.

Christopher Emmanuel Clack, 27, was arrested about 7: 15 p.m. in the 4000 block of Belle Ave. in the Forest Park, said Agent Ragina L. Cooper.

Agent Cooper said Mr. Clack, whose last known address was the 4900 block of Palmer Ave. in the Pimlico area, was arrested without incident while seated in a car with a woman, ending a police sting operation.

Mr. Clack was arrested by FBI agents and members of the city police robbery squad and the U.S. Marshal's task force, Agent Cooper said.

She said arresting officers confiscated more than $2,000 in cash from the suspect and seized the car as evidence.

Agent Cooper said the woman in the car, Claudia Sessons, 20, of the 4900 block of Palmer Ave. was charged with being a co-conspirator in at least one of the eight bank robberies Mr. Clack is suspected of committing and harboring a fugitive from justice.

Both were taken to city police headquarters where they were charged, Agent Cooper said. They were to be arraigned today before a U.S. Magistrate in federal court.

Mr. Clack is charged in warrants in robberies at these and other banks:

The Signet Bank in the 800 block of N. Rolling Road on April 11.

The NationsBank in the 1500 block of Joh Ave. in Catonsville on April 8.

The Provident Bank of Maryland in the 3400 block of Annapolis Road on April 5 and March 23.

The First National Bank in the 3400 block of Annapolis Road on April 4.
