Sanford Man Sentenced to 15 Years for Bank Robbery
PORTLAND, ME—United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Michel D’Angelo, 35, of Sanford, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge Nancy Torresen to 15 years in prison and three years of supervised release for bank robbery. D’Angelo pleaded guilty on February 13, 2014.
Court records reveal that on September 21, 2012, D’Angelo stole about $1,300 from Kennebunk Savings Bank in Berwick. D’Angelo robbed the bank disguised as a woman and wearing a sweat suit, wig, sunglasses and a purse. He also used white surgical tape to cover a “Real Deal” tattoo on his fingers and a pink scarf to conceal a large “Karma” tattoo on his neck. He approached the teller counter, verbally demanded cash and said that he had a bomb in his bag and would set it off if the teller pushed any buttons.
D’Angelo was subject to an enhanced sentence as a career offender for prior violent crime convictions.
The investigation was conducted by the Berwick and Kittery Police Departments and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
