Berlin Man Sentenced to 10 Years for Armed Bank Robbery

BERLIN, Md. - More than a year after an armed bank robbery in Berlin, the man who admitted to the crime has learned his fate.

Maryland's district attorney says a judge sentenced 54-year-old Jeff Hare of Berlin on Thursday to 10 years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release.

According to Hare's plea agreement, on March 13, 2015, he entered the BB&T bank on Racetrack Road in Berlin wearing a ski mask and carrying a handgun.

Prosecutors say Hare demanded cash, car keys and purses from each teller while pointing a gun at them, making off with roughly $2,850 in cash from the bank.
Hare admitted that he then took off in a car belonging to a bank employee who had locked herself in a back room. He was arrested later than evening at a home in Ocean Pines, with the money he had stolen.

According to Maryland's district attorney, Hare has been detained since the arrest and during that time tried to impede the investigation by arranging for the disposal of evidence.

On May 1, 2015, an associate of Hare's visited him at the Worcester County Detention Center. During the visit, prosecutors say Hare told the associate that he was being framed and that someone had a box of garbage that would incriminate him. Hare reportedly asked the associate to get the box, which authorities later learned contained the ski mask Hare wore during the robbery and carjacking, a .38 caliber revolver believed to have been used during the robbery and the purse Hare stole from the bank employee, including her driver’s license.
