REISTERSTOWN MAN SENTENCED TO 10 YEARS FOR BANK ROBBERY
Baltimore, Maryland - Luvine Summers, age 31, of Reisterstown, Maryland, was sentenced today to 10 years in prison, followed by three years of supervised release for bank robbery, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.
According to the statements of facts presented to the court on November 2, 2006 at his guilty plea, on June 7, 2006, Luvine Arthur Summers, entered the Provident Bank, located at 9337 Baltimore National Pike, Ellicott City, Maryland, approached a teller at the bank and stated “put the money in the envelope, hurry up and don’t give me no dye pack.” The teller gave Summers $4,836, including a dye pack and Summers left the bank.
Moments later several citizens in the area adjacent to the bank observed Summers walking through the parking lot, heard an explosion and saw red dye and smoke coming from the bag Summers was carrying. Several persons stopped and physically detained Summers. Howard County Police arrested Summers and recovered $4,836 partially stained from the dye pack, as well as a fisherman’s type hat worn by Summers during the robbery and a yellow construction helmet.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Howard County Police Department for their investigative work, and commended Assistant United States Attorney A. David Copperthite, who prosecuted the case.
