Man who gave up is indicted in robbery

December 18, 2003|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A 45-year-old man who police said walked up to an officer last month and said he wanted to confess to a 2-month-old bank robbery in Jessup was indicted yesterday on robbery and theft charges.

A Howard County grand jury returned the two-count indictment against Tommy Lee Losh, whose address is not listed on charging papers, for the robbery Sept. 23 of the Wachovia Bank branch in the 8600 block of Washington Blvd.

More than $3,600 was taken, according to charging papers.

Court papers state that the robber, who was wearing a cap, dark sunglasses and a concert T-shirt for the band AC/DC, walked into the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money while telling her he needed to make a "withdrawal." The teller gave the man cash from her drawer.

Two months and one day after the robbery, Losh approached an officer at Savage Park and said he had robbed the bank and wanted to turn himself in, according to charging documents. Losh knew details about the robbery that had not been publicly released and appeared to be the same person filmed by bank surveillance cameras, according to the charging papers.

Losh was being held in the Howard County Detention Center on $100,000 bond.
