7/11/2018 - Repeat Bank Robber Facing Federal Time in Prison - Click here to print this information

(WNAV) -- An Ocean City resident is facing an eight-year federal prison sentence for his role in an armed bank robbery, again.

Federal prosecutors say Tyrone Pierce was working at a motel when he donned a disguise that included a fake beard and gloves, threatened a bank clerk on Coastal Highway saying he would shoot her and said a bomb was by the drive-thru window.

It was on August 24, 2016 and he left one of his gloves behind.

Mr. Pierce had DNA on file from a previous bank robbery conviction in 1999. His plea deal includes time behind bars and supervised probation for the next five years. Mr. Pierce is 60-years-old.
