|U.S. Attorney’s Office December 12, 2013|
PORTLAND, ME—United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty, II announced today that Daniel Barry, 38, of Pembroke, New Hampshire, pled guilty in U.S. District Court in Portland to armed bank robbery charges. The charges arise from the October 19, 2013 armed bank robbery of Kennebunk Savings in Eliot, Maine, and the October 26, 2013 armed bank robbery of the Ocean Communities Federal Credit Union in Sanford, Maine.
According to court records, during the Kennebunk Savings robbery, Barry vaulted over the teller counter and took $7,896 from the teller drawers, while an associate pointed a Ruger Red Hawk .44 Magnum revolver at tellers. Barry was also the source of a Dan Wesson .22 caliber revolver that was used to rob $8,574 from Ocean Communities Federal Credit Union. Both firearms were recovered during a search of Barry’s residence.
Barry faces up to 25 years in prison and/or a $250,000 fine on each count. He 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, 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."
