Annapolis Police Beat: Bryan Ira Summers charged with armed robbery of eldery couple in home invasion

Home Invasion

This dirtbag should have still been in prison for a Charles County armed robbery conviction from 2012!

Annapolis, Md. (Sept. 9, 2014) Anne Arundel Police report the arrest of Bryan Ira Summers for the armed home invasion that took place in Annapolis on September 6, 2014 at 7:10 p.m. when officers were dispatched to the 1900 block of Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard in Annapolis.

The male victim, who was home with his wife, both of whom are 77-years-old, advised police that he was sitting on his couch when a male suspect entered the home, pointed a handgun at him and demanded money. The victim cooperated and turned over an undisclosed amount of money. The suspect then fled the home through the garage. It is unknown how the suspect entered the home, but there were no signs of forced entry.

The suspect was described by police as a black male in his late 20’s with a heavy build. The suspect had a round face with a short very dark (black colored) beard that looked faked. The victim said it almost looked like it was painted on. The man was wearing a white shirt, black pants and possibly a skull cap.

Neither the victim nor his wife, who was also home at the time, was injured. Anyone having information is asked to contact Detective Eric Love #1382 at Eastern District, 410-222-6145

Bryan Ira Summers charged in home invasion in Annapolis but should have still been in prison for armed robbery in Charles County, Md.

Bryan Ira Summers charged in home invasion in Annapolis but should have still been in prison for armed robbery in Charles County, Md.

On Tuesday police report that through the course of the investigation detectives were able to identify a suspect. On September 8, 2014 Bryan Ira Summers was arrested and charged with Armed Robbery, Robbery, Assault First Degree, Assault Second Degree, Burglary First Degree, Burglary Third Degree, Handgun on a person, Use of a Firearm to commit a Felony/Violent Crime and Theft under $10,000.   Bryan Ira Summers was committed to the Anne Arundel County Detention Center on a Bond.

Suspect: Bryan Ira Summers 22 of 2176 Mulberry Hill Rd. Annapolis, MD.

The older couple who were allegedly terrorized by Summers can thank the sentencing guidelines as well as Anthony Covington, the States Attorney of Charles County Maryland, for agreeing to a plea deal on armed robbery charges for a crime that took place in 2011.

The taxpayers paid for the legal defense of Summers for an indictment issued on Aug. 26, 2011. The Public Defender was Gerald J. Riviello and Adam D. Perrelli, according to court records.

Charged with thirteen counts ranging from possession of a handgun during commission of a felony to armed robbery, Covington dropped all the charges except that of armed robbery in a plea deal with the public defenders. The deal cooked up in the interest of protecting the public, at least that is supposed to be the general idea of a plea deal, to minimize the cost to the taxpayers of a lengthy trial by incarcerating the criminal and gaining a pound of flesh – was supposed to result in a jail term of ten years with six years suspended, four years in prison and another three years of supervised probation.

From consulting with a calculator, it appears that since States Attorney Covington put his name to the deal in court on Jan. 13, 2012, that as of this date, Summers should still be in prison. In addition, Anne Arundel Police did not report in their investigation that Summers was accompanied by his parole officer during the armed home invasion in Annapolis.

Court records for the sentence summary show that Summers had earned credit for time served of 191 days in prison prior to the guilty plea he submitted in order to get off easy. Circuit Court Judge Chappelle sat on the case on Jan. 17, 2012, according to court records.

Charles County Officers John R. Long, Charles Gass, James L. Thompson and Terrell Hemsley were investigators on the Charles County crimes involving Summers.

The legal magic that puts the public at great disadvantage in Maryland and perpetrated by the left-wing members of the General Assembly who write the laws and the liberal judges appointed by the Governor can be summed up in one phrase: “Motion for Reconsideration”. Without giving any reason, a judge can reconsider a sentence after reporters go home and citizens aren’t paying attention.

On Feb. 21, 2012, the public defenders representing Summers filed a motion to the court asking for a reconsideration which was opposed by the Charles County States Attorney.  While court records do not reflect whether or not the sentence was changed, the fact remains that Summers was arrested for the armed robbery of an old couple in their home just this past week. He should have been in prison.

This isn’t the only time that Summers got a sweet deal in the courts for violent criminal conduct.

In Garret County District Court on Feb. 23, 2010, Summers was charged with two counts of assault. One count was dropped and on the other he entered a plea of guilty in a deal in which he was put on probation before judgment and sentenced to seven days in jail, all of which were suspended. He was released on unsupervised probation due to end on June 4, 2014 — which in the meantime he had been convicted of armed robbery.  His taxpayer supplied public defender in this case was Raymond G. Strubin of Oakland, Md.

Court records give a hint as to the reconsideration sought in Charles County but concealed in the murky record keeping of the Maryland Judiciary. On April 3, 2012 an entry of Violation of Probation was placed on the record, three entries of commitment in May of 2014 and an entry to correct the record was placed on June 5, 2014.
