August 06, 1996|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

A homeless man walked into the State Police barracks in Glen Burnie Sunday night and confessed to last week's robbery of the Linthicum branch of a NationsBank, county police said.

Harold Clendenin, 41, was charged with robbery.

Police said the man had been drinking before he walked into the barracks in the 6800 block of Aviation Blvd. about 10: 30 p.m.

He gave state troopers a written confession to last Thursday's crime in which a man walked into the bank in the 200 block of Benton Ave. about 10 a.m., approached a teller and held a note at eye level.

The note demanded money and threatened that the teller would be shot if she did not comply, police said.

The teller handed over the money and the man walked out.
