Daniel Barry, 38, of Pembroke, New Hampshire; Marvin Eugene Ansteth Jr., 40, of
Somersworth, New Hampshire; and Brianne Mone, a/k/a “Bri,” age 27, of Dover, New

According to court records, Barry provided handguns for and participated in the

getaway driver for the Kennebunk Savings robbery. Mone was the getaway driver for the Ocean
Communities Federal Credit Union robbery. Investigation revealed that Ansteth was also the
getaway driver for the armed bank robberies of Peoples United Bank, in Exeter, New Hampshire,
on October 7, 2013 and of Meredith Village Savings Bank, in Alton New Hampshire, on October
10, 2013. Investigation also revealed that Mone was also the getaway driver for the armed bank
robbery of Citizens Bank, in Somersworth, New Hampshire, on August 21, 2013. According to

The defendants will make their initial appearances in the U.S. District Court in Portland
today.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Maine State
