Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Daniel
Barry, 38, of Pembroke, New Hampshire, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court to 63
months in prison and 5 years of supervised release for armed bank robbery. He was also ordered
to pay $15,471 in restitution. The charges arose from the October 19, 2013 armed bank robbery
of Kennebunk Savings in Eliot, Maine and the October 26, 2013 armed bank robbery of the
Ocean Communities Federal Credit Union (OCFCU) in Sanford, Maine.

Brianne Mone, 27, of Dover, New Hampshire, was sentenced to 45 months in prison and
3 years of supervised release for aiding and abetting armed bank robbery. The charges arose

Hampshire and the October 2013 armed bank robbery of OCFCU. She was also ordered to pay
$10,708 in restitution.

According to court records, during the Kennebunk Savings robbery, Barry vaulted over
the teller counter and took $7,896 from the teller drawers, while an associate, Philip Gage,

Magnum revolver used by Gage during the robbery as well as the source of a Dan Wesson .22
caliber revolver that was used by Gage to rob $8,574 from OCFCU. Both firearms we recovered
during a search of Barry’s residence.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Maine State
Police, and the Eliot, Kittery, Sanford, Berwick, York, Maine and Exeter, Somersworth, Alton
and Pembroke, New Hampshire police departments. U.S. Attorney Delahanty praised the
cooperation among these law enforcement agencies noting that “these armed bank robberies
were quickly solved because local, state, county and federal law enforcement agencies across
two states worked closely together.”
