|U.S. Attorney’s Office April 02, 2014|
PORTLAND, ME—United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty, II announced that Daniel Barry, 38, of Pembroke, New Hampshire, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court to 63 months in prison and five years of supervised release for armed bank robbery. He was also ordered to pay $15,471 in restitution. The charges arose 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 (OCFCU) in Sanford, Maine.
Brianne Mone, 27, of Dover, New Hampshire, was sentenced to 45 months in prison and three years of supervised release for aiding and abetting armed bank robbery. The charges arose from the August 21, 2013 armed bank robbery of Citizen’s Bank in Somersworth, New Hampshire, and the October 2013 armed bank robbery of OCFCU. She was also ordered to pay $10,708 in restitution.
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, Philip Gage, pointed a Ruger Red Hawk .44 Magnum revolver at tellers. Barry was the source of the .44 Magnum revolver used by Gage during the robbery, as well as the source of a Dan Wesson .22 caliber revolver that was used by Gage to rob $8,574 from OCFCU. Both firearms we recovered during a search of Barry’s residence.
Mone was the getaway driver for the Citizen’s Bank and OCFCU armed bank robberies. During the Citizen’s Bank robbery, Gage 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.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation; the Maine State Police; and the Eliot, Kittery, Sanford, Berwick, and York, Maine Police Departments; 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.”
