Man charged in Millersville bank robbery

February 25, 1997

A county police officer arrested a Glen Burnie man Saturday on charges of robbing a Millersville bank this month after the officer spotted the truck allegedly used in the robbery.

Ronald Lee Stansbury Jr., 22, of the 8100 block of Crispen Court was charged in a warrant with bank robbery and driving with a suspended or revoked license.

Cpl. Dwight Shaffer was patrolling Crain Highway near Green Branch Lane in Millersville about 8 a.m. when he saw a 1994 Isuzu Amigo that fit the description of the getaway vehicle in the robbery Feb. 13 of First National Bank in the 400 block of Old Mill Road.

In that robbery, a man wearing a suit, a coat, sunglasses and a black knit cap showed a teller a note demanding money. He walked out with the money.

FBI agents think the same man robbed a Crestar bank branch in the 100 block of Main St. in Annapolis Feb. 3.

In one of the robberies, the robber fled in an Isuzu truck, an FBI spokesman said.

When Shaffer stopped the truck, he found that the driver matched the description of the bank robbery suspect, police said. Shaffer arrested the man, who also was wanted by FBI on bank robbery charges.
