Berks Co. man sentenced for bank bomb threat

Thursday, January 24, 2013

A Berks County man who tried to rob a bank by pretending to have explosives will spend the next five years in prison.

30-year-old Dragos Ungurean admitted that he walked into the M and T Bank in Wyomissing last March and showed a fake bomb.

An off-duty officer was in the bank at the time and shot Ungurean.

The device was nothing more than two soda cans and an LED light.
