DC Bank Robber Sentenced to Prison for Leading Police on Chase in Dunkirk

Mocobizscene-  A man from the District will face several decades in prison for his role in a failed bank robbery in Calvert County and the ensuing police pursuit, as announced by the state’s attorney’s office.

Jemel Anthony Brown, aged 32, has been sentenced to 32 years in prison by the Department of Corrections. This sentence was imposed due to his participation in the robbery that occurred at M&T Bank in Dunkirk in May of the previous year. During that period, the authorities detained the following individuals:

      • Brown;
      • Silas Moliek Moore, 37;
      • Cedric Fondta Moore, 39;
      • Donise Sarah Blacknell, 26.

All four suspects involved in the robbery have received their sentences, with the three remaining individuals now facing the consequences. It should be noted that all four individuals are residents of Washington, DC. At approximately 1:30 p.m. on Monday, May 1, 2023, the sheriff’s office received a tip about a possible armed bank robbery at the M&T Bank branch on Southern Maryland Boulevard in Dunkirk.

According to investigators, a man discreetly approached a bank teller and handed over a note, demanding cash while showing a handgun.

Detectives from the agency’s Criminal Investigation Bureau have reported that the suspect managed to escape with an unknown amount of money in a brown Kia that did not have a front tag. Witnesses observed the vehicle rapidly speeding away towards the south on Route 4.

Investigators located a vehicle matching the given description at Route 4 and Dares Beach Road intersection in Prince Frederick. However, the driver ignored the detectives’ attempt to pull them over and sped through a red light, causing several accidents. Detectives followed the pursuit onto Route 2, near Route 260 in Owings. While chasing the suspect, the suspect crashed into a civilian’s vehicle, leaving both cars disabled and forcing the pursuit to come to a halt.

Two people in the suspect vehicle suffered minor injuries and were sent to nearby hospitals. At the same time, the remaining two individuals were brought to the Calvert County Detention Center due to their role in the failed bank robbery. The driver of the other vehicle was in critical condition and had to be airlifted to a nearby trauma centre. However, he has since been released and is now recovering at home as of Tuesday, May 2.
