Of the four men facing 18 charges, including armed robbery and a handgun violation, in connection with the robbery of the First Mariner Bank at 366 Ritchie Highway in Severna Park, bail was set for one: $1.2 million for Gregory Eason, 25, of Baltimore.

Held without bond were Timothy Eugene Sims Jr., 27, of Pikesville; Joseph Alexander White, 31, of Baltimore; and Lawarence Everette Hill, 36, of Baltimore.
