Office of the State's Attorney for Baltimore City

For Immediate Release 5/20/15

Brandon Miller was convicted on multiple counts of robbery and theft after robbing a Highlandtown area Wells Fargo Bank. Assistant State’s Attorney Adam Lane Chaudry prosecuted the case.

On July 8, 2014, police responded to a call for a bank robbery in progress. Miller handed the teller a note demanding money. He escaped with more than $17,000. Six days later Miller returned to the same Wells Fargo Bank , and attempted to rob the bank a second time but the diligent efforts of the employees, who recognized Miller, caused him to flee. Pursuant to a subsequent police investigation, Miller was identified as the robber through a photographic array.

“This was an extremely traumatic experience for the bank employees,” said Assistant State’s Attorney Chaudry. “Despite their trying experience, the employees all did an outstanding job on the stand. They were detailed, courageous, and articulate; and it was that cooperation lead to this conviction.”

Miller, a multi-state offender, was on active probation in Virginia for felony drug possession at the time of the robbery. In 2012, he was convicted of robbery in Baltimore.

“We have to protect our local businesses. They are vital to the success of Baltimore. I’m proud of Adam’s work, and the work of Detective Anthony Kreafle and Detective William Taylor,” State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. “This conviction decreases the chances of other business owners being victimized.”

Miller faces a total of 110 years in prison. He will be sentenced on July 14.
