Milford Man Pleads Guilty to Bank Robbery
CONCORD, NH—Seamus Murphy, 33, of Milford, New Hampshire, entered a guilty plea to one count of bank robbery announced Acting United States Attorney Donald Feith.
Murphy walked into a Citizens Bank in Stratham, New Hampshire, on February 24, 2015 and gave the teller a note demanding money. The teller gave Murphy a quantity of United States currency. Surveillance cameras captured images of the robbery which were broadcast on local news outlets. Numerous individuals identified Murphy from the photographs and he was apprehended the next day, February 25, 2015. Murphy—who faces a maximum sentence of twenty years in prison and criminal fines of up to $250,000—will be detained pending sentencing, which is presently scheduled for January 29, 2016.
“The successful resolution of this bank robbery is due to the great investigative work of the Stratham Police and the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” stated Acting United States Attorney Donald Feith. “Bank robbery, even an unarmed bank robbery, is an inherently dangerous crime that causes great turmoil to its victims. We will continue to work with our state and local partners to vigorously prosecute these dangerous crimes.”
This case was investigated by the Stratham Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Georgiana Konesky.
