Man gets 12 years in Glen Burnie robbery


A Queen Anne man was sentenced in federal court yesterday to more than 12 years in prison for robbing a Glen Burnie bank and then leading police on a 10-mile car chase.

Anthony Wayne Nunn, 34, pleaded guilty in May to bank robbery -- a charge that stemmed from the Ritchie Highway robbery, in which prosecutors say he threatened tellers with a fake bomb.

As part of his sentence, he also agreed to make restitution of more than $220,000 in connection with several other banks he had robbed, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors say that on July 3, 2003, Nunn and another man -- 23-year-old Shaun Paul Sisson of Chestertown -- told tellers at the First Mariner Bank to put money in a bag, or else they would detonate a bomb. The two men fled with $60,000.

Anne Arundel County police chased Nunn's car for 10 miles before they caught the pair. At some point during the pursuit, Nunn's car collided with one of the police cruisers, prosecutors said.

Sisson has also pleaded guilty to robbery, and is awaiting sentencing.
