Man, 31, sentenced for bank robbery

A Baltimore County man received a 10-year prison sentence yesterday for robbing an Ellicott City bank.

Luvine Summers, 31, of Reisterstown pleaded guilty Nov. 2. In court papers, Summers admitted that on June 7, he robbed the Provident Bank in the 9300 block of Baltimore National Pike.

After he robbed the bank of $4,836, a dye pack exploded in the bag he was carrying. Several people stopped and detained Summers until authorities arrived, prosecutors said.
