Concord Man Pleads Guilty To May 2015 Robbery Of Bank Of New Hampshire
Concord, N.H.—Emily Gray Rice, United States Attorney for the District of New Hampshire, today announced that Scott Lojko, 40, of Concord, New Hampshire, pleaded guilty to a federal indictment charging him with bank robbery in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2113(a).
According to the indictment, statements made in court, and other public records in the case, Lojko robbed a Bank of New Hampshire branch location at 167 N. Main Street, Concord, New Hampshire on May 18, 2015. Lojko approached the teller with a demand note directing her to “relax and act normal” and to hand over “all the money.” The teller complied, providing Lojko approximately $6,090 in bank funds. Lojko fled the bank by foot before retrieving his parked vehicle on nearby Court Street. Concord Police detectives were able to identify Lojko from bank and other surveillance with the assistance of several civilian resources. A few days later, a search warrant executed at Lojko’s Concord residence led to the recovery of the clothes Lojko wore during the robbery as well as $4,510 in U.S. currency that constituted the remaining proceeds of the robbery. A federal indictment charging Lojko with bank robbery was returned by a grand jury sitting in Concord on August 21, 2015.
Lojko’s plea agreement includes a binding stipulated sentence of 48 months’ incarceration. A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for August 23, 2016, in front of U.S. District Judge Landya McCafferty. At that time, the Court will decide whether to accept the plea agreement and impose the agreed-upon period of incarceration, as well as any other conditions of Lojko’s sentence. Lojko also faces a mandatory restitution order to the Bank of New Hampshire.
The case was investigated by the Concord Police Department with assistance from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles L. Rombeau.
