Readout of Attorney General Merrick B. Garland’s Visit to the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Maine
PORTLAND, Maine: A Belgrade man was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Portland for bank robbery.
U.S. District Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. sentenced Clinton Damboise, 47, to 98 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release. He was ordered to pay $3,179 in restitution. Damboise pleaded guilty on September 27, 2021.
According to court records, in September 2016, Damboise entered the Camden National Bank in Manchester, Maine, telling the teller, “This is a robbery, not a joke.” He gestured to the waistband of his jacket and said he had a gun. The teller handed Damboise cash, and he fled. Damboise, who was not wearing a mask, was identified by the teller and by the bank’s security camera footage.
The FBI, Maine State Police, Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office and Southington (Connecticut) Police Department investigated the case.
