Ellsworth Man Pleads Guilty to Bank Robbery Charges

Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Timothy T. Myers, 27, of Ellsworth, Maine pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court to bank robbery.  The charges arose from the robbery in December 2018 of a two Bangor banks.

Court records reveal that on December 21, 2018, the defendant entered a TD Bank branch and handed a teller a note that read: “Give me the money or I shoot, no dye, $1,000.”  The teller gave the defendant cash from the drawer and he absconded with it.

Five days later, the defendant robbed a KeyBank branch.  He entered the bank, walked to the table near the entrance, and picked up a withdrawal slip on which he wrote: “Money now or I shoot, no dye,” and handed it to a teller.  The defendant took money from the teller and fled.

The defendant faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each robbery.  He will be sentenced after the completion of a presentence investigation report by the U.S. Probation Office.

The investigation was conducted by the Bangor and Ellsworth Police Departments, the Maine State Police Crime Laboratory, the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, and the FBI.
