12 years for repeat Md. bank robber

A serial bank robber who robbed or tried to rob 10 banks over a 25-day stretch last July has been sentenced to 12 years and seven months in prison.

Thirty-nine-year-old Frederick McMillan of Baltimore was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court.

McMillan pleaded guilty in March to the robberies, which netted a total of nearly $24,000. The banks he robbed were all in Baltimore, and several of them were downtown. In each case, he handed a teller a note demanding money, and he claimed in seven of the notes that he had a gun. He threatened to shoot one teller.

McMillan turned himself in a day after the last robbery, told authorities he was the culprit and identified himself from surveillance footage. He had been convicted previously of bank robbery.
