FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BALTIMORE MAN SENTENCED TO 151 MONTHS IN PRISON
FOR TWO TOWSON BANK ROBBERIES
BALTIMORE, Maryland - Harry Hudson Conway, age 44, of Baltimore was sentenced today to 151 months in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release for bank robbery, announced United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. Chief U.S. District Judge Benson E. Legg also ordered Conway to pay $3,369 in restitution.
According to the statement of facts presented to the court on December 19, 2005 at his guilty plea, Conway entered the Mercantile Bank located at 409 Washington Avenue, Towson, Maryland, on September 12, 2005, and approached a bank teller with a withdrawal slip for $3000. Conway told the bank teller that he had a gun and that she needed to give him money. Conway warned the teller not to hit the alarm. The teller handed Conway $3000 and Conway left the bank.
On September 15, 2005, Conway entered the Hamilton Federal Bank located at 19 West Pennsylvania Avenue in Towson. Conway approached a teller and inquired about opening a bank account. The teller asked for identification, and Conway provided a Maryland identification card in his own name. The teller took the ID card and returned after a few minutes. Conway told the teller to give him all of the “money in the drawer” and that “I have two guns.” Conway also told the teller not to hit the alarm, or the bank would blow up. The teller provided $369 to Conway, along with a dye pack.
As Conway was leaving the bank and proceeding on foot through the Towson Commons mall nearby, the dye pack exploded on his clothing. Baltimore County police officers passing by observed red dye stains on Conway’s clothes, detained him and after further investigation, arrested Conway for the Hamilton bank robbery.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Baltimore County Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation for their investigative work in this case. Mr. Rosenstein also praised Assistant United States Attorney Michael C. Hanlon, who prosecuted the case.
