Sanders, who has a history of convictions, was charged Wednesday in a recent series of robberies in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties. In four of the attacks, the robber abducted men from parking lots and tried to force them to withdraw cash from ATMs.

Prince George’s State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said she was “obviously very satisfied” Sanders would not be released on bond, noting his extensive criminal record.

“He really illustrates for us the challenge we face with violent, repeat offenders,” she said. “He’s a person we’ve seen over and over again.”

The hearing Thursday was on three cases in Prince George’s totaling 16 charges. Sanders will have to appear in Montgomery to answer his charges there.
