BANGOR, ME—United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty, II announced that Stephanie L. McCormick, 22, of Augusta, Maine, pled guilty yesterday before Chief Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to robbing a CVS pharmacy in Augusta.
The charges stem from a pharmacy robbery that occurred on January 22, 2013. According to court records, Anthony Post handed a pharmacy technician a note, authored by McCormick, that read: “Quickly & calmly put all oxycodone in bag if not I have a gun & will start shooting no scene.” As a result, he was given several bottles containing $500 worth of oxycodone, and he left the pharmacy and met with McCormick in a car parked nearby and the two fled together. In fact, no firearm was possessed or used.
McCormick faces a sentence of up to 20 years’ imprisonment, a fine of up to $250,000, and restitution. McCormick has been detained in federal custody since her arrest on January 31, 2013. She will be sentenced after the completion of a presentence investigation report by the United States Probation Office.
Anthony Post entered a plea of guilty to the same offense on March 12, 2013, and is also awaiting sentencing.
U.S. Attorney Delahanty praised the cooperation between the Augusta Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation during the joint investigation.
