CONCORD, NH—United States Attorney John P. Kacavas announced today that a federal jury has convicted Jayson Fulcher, 35, of Nashua, New Hampshire, for attempted bank robbery.
Mr. Fulcher entered the Citizens Bank, 238 Main Street, Nashua on September 19, 2008. He was wearing a disguise including “Groucho” glasses, which he had just purchased at a CVS. He passed a note to a teller demanding money but fled emptyhanded when he thought an alarm had been activated. He was arrested the next morning when he was discovered hiding in the basement of a duplex with a female acquaintance.
The defendant is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Joseph DiClerico on March 3, 2010. He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine. Because of his extensive criminal record, he qualifies as a career offender under federal law.
The case was investigated by the Nashua Police Department with the assistance of the FBI and corporate security personnel from the Citizens Bank, the Sovereign Bank and CVS. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Clyde R. W. Garrigan.
