Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that
Anthony W. Post, 19, of Lewiston, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor
to two years in prison and three years of supervised release for robbing a pharmacy. He pleaded
guilty to that crime on March 12, 2013. He was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of
$1,587.51.

Court records reveal that on January 22, 2013, the defendant entered a CVS in Augusta
wearing sunglasses with a scarf across his face. He presented a note at the pharmacy counter that
demanded oxycodone, claimed he had a gun, and threatened to shoot if his demand was not met.
Candace Eaton and Stephanie McCormick were in a car waiting for Post. McCormick had
planned the robbery and authored the demand note. McCormick was sentenced in December
2013 by Chief U.S. District Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to three years and ten months in
prison, three years of supervised release, a fine of $1,000, and a restitution obligation. Eaton was
the getaway driver and she took a share of the stolen pills. She was sentenced in December 2013
to one and one half years of imprisonment and three years of supervised release for being an
accessory after the fact to the robbery of a pharmacy. She was also fined $5,000 and ordered to
pay restitution.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Augusta
Police Department.
