On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced an arrest in connection with a string of bank robberies in Virginia and Maryland. The suspect was dubbed the “American League Bandit,” because he wore a Baltimore Orioles or New York Yankees cap during the robberies.
The suspect in the released surveillance video footage has been identified as 48-year-old Tyrone Kevin Gregg, of the 100 block of North Mount Olivet Lane. Gregg has been allegedly connected to three bank robberies in Anne Arundel and Howard County in Maryland and Fairfax County in Virginia. He allegedly robbed the Howard Bank on Defense Highway twice, in January and February.
Baltimore County police have charged Gregg with armed robbery. He entered the BB&T Bank in Hunt Valley on May 31 and demanded money from a clerk.
Gregg is also facing other charges, including armed robbery, robbery and theft, originating from other robberies in Baltimore County.
In 2014, Gregg was given a four-and-a-half year prison sentenced after pleading guilty to aggravated identity theft, committing bank fraud and aiding and abetting. He was also order to pay $140,000 as part of the sentence. It isn’t clear whether he was released from prison early or given credit for time served.
Gregg and two other people stole social security numbers and other personal information to open credit card accounts the victims’ names utilizing fake IDs, according to a plea agreement Gregg signed in 2014.
