Baltimore man gets 16-year sentence in 2006 bank robbery

October 25, 2007

A Baltimore man was sentenced yesterday to 16 years in federal prison for armed bank robbery, according to the U.S. attorney's office.

Anthony Brown, 35, had pleaded guilty to the Nov. 29 robbery of the Provident Bank in the 2900 block of O'Donnell St. Brown and three accomplices took more than $10,000 during the robbery, federal prosecutors said.

Two city police officers saw Brown and one of the co-conspirators leave the bank and get into a red van after the robbery, and the officers took down the license number.

City police found the van on North Spring Street, and Brown was arrested inside a home with $1,800 in his pocket, prosecutors said.

U.S. District Judge William M. Nickerson found that Brown is a career offender because of two previous convictions.

After the 16 years in prison, Brown will have to serve three years of supervised release, prosecutors said.
