Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that
Matthieu O’Rourke, a/k/a “Tony Angeless,” age 36, of Portland, was sentenced today in U.S.
District Court by Judge D. Brock Hornby to 100 months in prison and three years of supervised
release for bank robbery. O’Rourke pleaded guilty on June 11, 2014.

According to court records, on September 27, 2014, O’Rourke entered a Key Bank
branch located in Portland wearing a bright construction vest, sunglasses, a hat and carrying a
hard hat. He walked to a teller window and presented a note stating, in substance: “I’m a crazy
person. No one will be hurt as long as you give me the money out of both drawers.” The teller
complied and gave O’Rourke about $1,280. On October 30, 2013, O’Rourke was arrested in
Rivera Beach, Florida.

At the sentencing hearing, O’Rourke was subject to an enhanced sentence as a career
offender. His prior convictions included a 1998 conviction for solicitation to commit murder for
which he was sentenced to eight years in prison.

This case was investigated by the Portland Police Department, the Federal Bureau of
Investigation and the United States Marshals Service.
