Biddeford Man Sentenced To Seven Years for Credit Union Robbery

Portland, Maine.  United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank, announced that Glenn Brackett, 49, of Biddeford, Maine was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge George Z. Singal to seven years in prison and three years of supervised release for robbing a credit union.

According to court records, on August 16, 2017, Brackett entered the Infinity Federal Credit Union, in Arundel, Maine, approached a teller with his hand hidden in a sock making it appear that he was armed, and ordered the teller to give him everything.  The teller gave Brackett money and he absconded in a vehicle.  Law enforcement officers responded to the area of the robbery and Brackett sped away when he saw a marked police cruiser.  Soon thereafter, police found his vehicle abandoned behind a local business.  The police tracked him into the woods behind the business and arrested him, recovering all the money Brackett stole from the bank.

This investigation was conducted by the Biddeford Police Department, the York County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI.
