Anne Arundel County Bank Robber Sentenced To over 19 Years in Prison


Robbed the Same Bank 12 Years Earlier

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 20, 2012

Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles, Jr. sentenced Randall Paul Shreve, Jr., age 44, of Baltimore, Maryland, today to 235 in prison followed by five years of supervised release for bank robbery.

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge Richard A. McFeely of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; and Anne Arundel County Police Chief James Teare, Sr.

According to Shreve’s guilty plea, on May 23, 2011, Shreve, dressed all in black and wearing a black ski mask, entered the Carrollton Bank in the 400 block of Crain Highway in Glen Burnie, Maryland. Shreve, who was carrying what appeared to be a handgun, forced two tellers who were standing outside the bank to enter the bank, with Shreve following. Shreve ordered the tellers to open the door to the teller stations, where three tellers were working. Shreve took $11,080 in cash from the drive-through window teller’s cash door. The stack of money included a dye pack. Shreve then fled the bank and got into his pick-up truck that was parked in an adjacent parking lot. The dye pack exploded and Shreve’s truck was spotted by police officers responding to the bank robbery. Shreve drove aggressively attempting to avoid the police, eventually bailing out of the truck and running away.

Shreve was arrested nearby. From Shreve’s truck officers recovered a BB pistol loaded with six copper BBs; Shreve’s driver’s license; and black and dark blue clothing stained with red dye. A latex glove and four $100 bills, all stained with red dye were recovered during a search of Shreve.

During a subsequent interview with law enforcement, Shreve admitted that the last time he was in that bank was 12 years ago, when he robbed it the first time.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein commended the FBI and Anne Arundel County Police Department for their work in the investigation. Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant United States Attorney Paul E. Budlow, who prosecuted the case.
