A federal jury convicted a Baltimore man with multiple charges related to a bank robbery in Howard County in 2016. 

Timothy Allen McNeal, 31, is facing charges of armed robbery, conspiracy, and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence. 

According to evidence submitted at the trial, McNeal and his brother robbed the Howard County Education Federal Credit Union on August 4, 2016. Both entered the credit union wearing ski masks and McNeal had a rifle-style long gun with a large magazine that was visible on the top. The evidence continues to say that McNeal forced the supervisor to open the safe in the lobby and then zip tied her arms behind her back. 

A couple hours after the robbery, McNeal and his brother went to Wal-Mart and spent over $700 in cash on two large televisions. Two days after the robbery McNeal's brother bought a maroon Lexus and paid $4,620 in cash. 

During a search warrant, law enforcement found ski masks, clothes matching the clothing worn by McNeal during the robbery, and banded cash in McNeal and his brother's home. 

McNeal's sentencing will be held on May 30.
