Man Sentenced To Prison For Roanoke Rapids Bank Robbery

A Maryland man has been sentenced to more than 12 years in prison for robberies of banks in Maryland, Georgia, North Carolina and Delaware.

A news release from the U.S. Department of Justice said a federal judge on Wednesday sentenced 31-year-old Zachary Scott Shanaberger to 151 months in prison for four counts of bank robbery. According to his plea agreement, Shanaberger robbed nine banks in Maryland, Georgia, North Carolina and Delaware in 2010.

The agreement says the banks that were robbed included the Bank Annapolis in Severna Park, Md.; the BB&T Bank in Westminster, Md.; the M&T Bank in Frederick, Md. and the Howard bank in Ellicott City, Md.

Authorities say Shanaberger robbed two banks in Marietta, Ga., and banks in Dover, Del.; Kennesaw, Ga.; and Roanoke Rapids, N.C.

    I am shocked this man received such a light sentence for robbing so many banks. This doesn't seem to give anyone the reason not to. It did not mention if he even has to pay any back. Put him to work in prison w/no privileges and make him pay back what he stole from innocent people. It seems as though the guilty have an easier life than the ones trying to work and make ends meet or have worked and now can't work. The taxpayers should NOT have to pay for his bad choices. We could save a lot of money in this country w/this subject alone.

      I am not surprised at all. The justice system has major problems. Recently a man who was arrested with 5 charges,1 charge was a felony. He had a $60,000 bond. He was out of jail within 4 days. He agreed to plead guilty on the felony charge and he signed out of the Detention center and walked away a free man. His rap sheet is as long as my arm. So no I am not surprised!
