BANGOR, ME—United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty, II announced that Stephanie L. McCormick, 23, of Augusta, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor to three years and 10 months of imprisonment and three years of supervised release for aiding and abetting the robbery of a pharmacy. She pled guilty to that crime on March 21, 2013. She was also fined $1,000 and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $1,587.51.
Court records reveal that on January 22, 2013, Anthony Post (age 19) entered a CVS in Augusta wearing sunglasses with a scarf across his face. He presented a note at the pharmacy counter that demanded oxycodone, claimed he had a gun, and threatened to shoot if his demand was not met. McCormick and another woman were in a car waiting for Post. McCormick had planned the robbery, authored the demand note, arranged for a driver for the robbery, and she took a share of the stolen pills.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Augusta Police Department.
