BOSTON – An East Boston man pleaded guilty today to armed robbery of a bank in Peabody.

Mark Lepage, 51, pleaded guilty to armed bank robbery and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. Sentencing is scheduled for April 3, 2014.

On April 4, 2011, at approximately 1:14 p.m., Lepage walked into the Eastern Bank in Peabody brandishing a handgun, wearing sunglasses and a grey hooded sweatshirt pulled up over his head. He grabbed a male customer, held the gun to the customer's neck, and demanded money. After three bank tellers handed him $21,709, he fled the bank. He was arrested in East Boston two days later and indicted that month.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz; Vincent B. Lisi, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division; Colonel Timothy P. Alben, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police; and Peabody Police Chief Robert St. Pierre, made the announcement today. The case is being prosecuted by David G. Tobin and Carlos A. López of Ortiz’s Major Crimes Unit.
