Maryland man gets prison time in Raleigh bank robbery

Posted January 28, 2014

— A Hyattsville, Md., man was sentenced Tuesday to 11 years in federal prison for robbing a downtown Raleigh bank in 2012.

Dellonte Rashaun Seburn, 35, pleaded guilty to the robbery in October.

Prosecutors said Seburn traveled from Maryland to Raleigh on Sept. 23, 2012, and the following morning took a taxi to the Mechanics & Farmers Bank branch at 13 E. Hargett St. Once inside the bank, he handed a note to a teller demanding money and fled in the waiting taxi with $1,260.

The taxi dropped him off near the State Capitol, police said.

U.S. marshals arrested Seburn a week later in Hyattsville.

    seems like a long time for $1260. although the amount is secondary to the crime, I'm sure. The article didn't say if a weapon was suggested or displayed (?). I have seen murderers get less time in prison.
