Police are searching for a convicted bank robber who investigators believe has fled the county after being released on an unsecured bond while awaiting sentencing.
The bond was revoked yesterday afternoon for Anthony Wayne Nunn, 25, of Westminster, who was found guilty March 23 of robbing the Westminster branch of Fairfax Savings Bank in May.
After his conviction, Circuit Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. requested a presentence investigation, set sentencing for May 4 and released Nunn on a $70,000 bond placed by the parents of the man's girlfriend.
But on March 31, Judge Burns granted the couple's request to be relieved of the bond commitment and released Nunn on $15,000 unsecured bond.
Westminster police and the county state's attorney's office asked that the bond be revoked after Nunn's girlfriend reported that her car had been stolen Saturday, city police said.
The car was recovered about 4 p.m. yesterday in the parking lot of Bishop's Garth, a Westminster apartment complex, city police said.
