Repeat Offender Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison for Robbing Same Bank in Carroll County Twice

A man, aged 28, has been sentenced to multiple years in prison after confessing to two bank robberies that took place at the same location in Carroll County several months ago. The incidents were captured on camera and led to his arrest.

Jimmie Lee Benjamin Haney admitted guilt on Friday for committing a robbery and an armed robbery at the same Capital One branch in September 2016 and January 2017, respectively.

In September 2016, Haney was captured on camera as he entered the bank located on East Ridgeville Boulevard in Mt. Airy. He handed a note to the teller, demanding cash, and the teller complied. The robber then fled on foot, taking off with $4,000.

In January 2017, several months later, Haney, disguised, approached an employee and demanded $5,000. However, this time the teller was only able to provide him with $630 before he quickly fled on foot. As a result, the incident sparked a Maryland State Police investigation.

Officials have reported that in mid-December 2022, the police were notified by detectives in North Carolina regarding two unsolved bank robberies. This information came to light after the suspect was apprehended for unrelated offenses in Greensboro.

According to reports, he admitted to being involved in the two unsolved bank robberies at Capital One. On Friday, February 9th, he pleaded guilty and received a sentence of 35 years in prison, with 10 years being served.

After his release, Haney was also placed on five years of probation as mandated by the judge.
