A Glen Burnie man continued to rob banks in Maryland and in three other states while on supervised release stemming from his conviction in 1997 for robbing banks in Georgia and Florida, according o the Maryland U.S. Attorney's Office.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett sentenced Gary Allen Densmore, 56, to 13 years in prison for his most recent robbery spree, and an additional five years for violating the provisions of his release.

Authorities said that Densmore, who pleaded guilty, robbed the Carrollton Bank on Crain Highway in Glen Burnie on Feb. 2, 2011 by handing a teller a note and a bag. He got away with $2,300, and prosecutors said he made his getaway in a stolen vehicle.

Federal prosecutors said that Densmore went on to rob banks in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin on Feb. 10, in Brookings, South Dakota on Feb. 14 and in Des Moines, Iowa on March 1, all in 2011. Authorities said he stole more than $15,000 from the three banks.

The prosecutors said that Densmore had  been convicted in Georgia in 1997 for holding up banks in that state and in Florida.
