Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Lance M. Szady, 27, of Windsor, Maine was sentenced today in U.S. District Court to seven years and three months in prison and three years of supervised release for aiding and abetting the robbery of a Rite Aid pharmacy in Augusta, Maine on September 2, 2014.  He pleaded guilty to that charge on February 10, 2015.

Court records show that on the evening of September 2, 2014, Dominic J. Pomerleau robbed the Rite Aid Pharmacy located on Hospital Street in Augusta, Maine.  He approached the pharmacy counter with a note that demanded oxycodone and absconded with three bottles of oxycodone.  Szady had planned the robbery with Pomerleau and had driven Pomerleau to the pharmacy and waited for him to complete the robbery.  The robbery was captured on surveillance video and witnesses provided descriptions of Pomerleau and his distinctive arm and neck tattoos.

The investigation was conducted by the Augusta Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
