Montgomery Co. Police Make Arrest In Serial Bank Robberies Case

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Maryland County police say a 44-year-old Beltsville man is expected to have a bond review hearing on Monday after being charged in the robberies of seven banks in the county.

Police said in a news release that Samuel Lewis has been charged with seven counts each of armed robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He was arrested on Friday.

Authorities say they’re continuing to investigate whether the suspect is responsible for other county bank robberies.

Police say the armed robberies happened between Oct. 14, 2010 and Sept. 2. They say a tipster contacted them after they released bank surveillance photos to the media. Authorities say the anonymous tipster is eligible for a reward of up to $2,500 from Crime Solvers of Montgomery County.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    How is it that 12 of the 9/11 terrorists could live for 2 weeks just 2 miles from NSA head quarters in Maryland.
    This after several of them had taken flight simulator lessons on Jumbo jet trainers and several of them where on State department terror watch lists.
    There is evidence that employees from DoD, CIA and DOJ accepted bribes from Al Quida.
    If DoJ and DoD employees where more concerned with doing their jobs than enriching themselves by stealing from suspects and taking bribes, then there might have been more a chance that 9/11 had never happened.

    Corrupt DEA are tampering with their suspect’s automobiles with the intent of causing a fatal accident.

    Sunday Sept 18 2011 a camera at the bank adjacent to Starbucks across the street from the Santa Clara University caught 2 of these corrupt D.O.J. employees doing just that.

    The DEA is part of the crime problem and not solution.
