Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced today that
Brianne Mone, a/k/a "Bri," age 27, of Dover, New Hampshire pled guilty in U.S. District
Court in Portland to armed bank robbery charges. The charges arise from the August 21, 2013
armed bank robbery of Citizen’s Bank in Somersworth, New Hampshire and the October 26,
2013 armed bank robbery of the Ocean Communities Federal Credit Union in Sanford, Maine.

According to court records, Mone was the getaway driver for both robberies. During the
Citizen’s Bank robbery, an associate gave a teller a handwritten demand note that read in part "I
have a bomb and a gun if you say a word you will die" and absconded with $3,132. During the
Ocean Communities Federal Credit Union robbery, an associate used a Dan Wesson .22 caliber
revolver to rob $8,574 from the credit union.

Mone faces up to 25 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, or both, on each count. She
will be sentenced after the completion of a presentence investigation report by the United States
Probation Office.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Maine State
Police, and the Eliot, Kittery, Sanford, Berwick, York, Maine and Exeter, Somersworth, Alton
and Pembroke, New Hampshire police departments. U.S. Attorney Delahanty praised the
cooperation among these law enforcement agencies noting that "these armed bank robberies
were quickly solved because local, state, county and federal law enforcement agencies across
two states worked closely together."
