BALTIMORE (AP) — Prosecutors say a Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty to robbing a Maryland bank while armed with an AK-47.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a news release that 34-year-old Jesse Allen Burney of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, entered the plea Friday in federal court in Baltimore.
Authorities say on April 27, 2015, Burney entered a bank in Whiteford, Maryland, carrying a loaded AK-47 in a backpack.
Officials say Burney demanded that tellers give him $100,000, and bank employees gave him more than $97,000 from the vault.
Prosecutors say Burney fled on a dirt bike, then in a car. Police tracked Burney by a GPS device tellers had put in with the money, and arrested him.
Prosecutors say Burney was on supervised release from another bank robbery when he robbed the Whiteford bank.
