New Hampshire Resident Pleads Guilty to Armed Bank Robbery Charges
|U.S. Attorney’s Office December 12, 2013|
PORTLAND, ME—United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty, II announced today that Brianne Mone, a/k/a "Bri," age 27, of Dover, New Hampshire, pled guilty in U.S. District Court in Portland to armed bank robbery charges. The charges arise from the August 21, 2013 armed bank robbery of Citizen’s Bank in Somersworth, New Hampshire, and the October 26, 2013 armed bank robbery of the Ocean Communities Federal Credit Union in Sanford, Maine.
According to court records, Mone was the getaway driver for both robberies. During the Citizen’s Bank robbery, an associate gave a teller a handwritten demand note that read, in part, "I have a bomb and a gun if you say a word you will die" and absconded with $3,132. During the Ocean Communities Federal Credit Union robbery, an associate used a Dan Wesson .22 caliber revolver to rob $8,574 from the credit union.
Mone faces up to 25 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, or both, on each count. She will be sentenced after the completion of a presentence investigation report by the United States Probation Office.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation; the Maine State Police; and the Eliot, Kittery, Sanford, Berwick, and York, Maine; and Exeter, Somersworth, Alton, and Pembroke, New Hampshire Police Departments. U.S. Attorney Delahanty praised the cooperation among these law enforcement agencies, noting that "these armed bank robberies were quickly solved because local, state, county, and federal law enforcement agencies across two states worked closely together."
