Manchester Man Sentenced to 77 Months on Bank Robbery Charge
CONCORD, NH—Shane Mitchell, 32, of Manchester, New Hampshire, was sentenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire on one count of bank robbery, announced Acting United States Attorney Donald Feith. The Court imposed a term of 77 months’ imprisonment, three years of supervised release and full restitution to the victim bank.
Mitchell walked into a TD Bank in Manchester, New Hampshire, on March 7, 2015 and handed the teller a note demanding money. The note, written in pencil on blue-lined paper stated something to the effect of, “Put the cash in the bag and no yelling or screaming. I have a weapon if anyone wants to live.” Mitchell made off with $600 in stolen funds.
That same day, police traced Mitchell to a nearby apartment building where the stolen money and distinctive items of clothing worn during the robbery were found. Police also recovered a pencil and blue-lined notepad consistent with the demand note.
This case was investigated by the Manchester Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Georgiana Konesky.
