Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Jeffrey
Burnham, 41, of Arundel, Maine, pled guilty today in U.S. District Court before Judge George
Z. Singal to theft by a bank officer.

According to court records, from about February of 2011 to February of 2012, Burnham,
who was a Vice President with TD Bank, stole about $240,000 from the bank. Burnham used
his corporate credit card to charge personal expenditures at gentlemen’s clubs located in Maine,
Massachusetts, New York, and Florida and then submitted false expense reports and other false
information that caused the bank to pay for those personal expenditures. Burnham also gave TD
Bank gift cards that were designed to be given as gifts to TD Bank clients instead to employees
of the gentlemen’s clubs.

Burnham faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1,000,000 fine. He will be sentenced after
completion of a pre-sentence investigation report by the United States Probation Office.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
