Dover Man Pleads Guilty to Bank Robbery

             CONCORD – James Aubin, 46, of Dover, pleaded guilty in federal court on April 23, 2019, to committing a bank robbery, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

             According to court documents and statements made in court, on July 12, 2018, Aubin entered the Bank of New Hampshire branch on Central Avenue in Dover and demanded money from the teller. The teller gave Aubin a quantity of United States currency. After images from bank surveillance videos were shown on local news outlets, investigators were able to positively identify Aubin as the robber.  After being arrested, Aubin admitted to robbing the bank.

            Aubin is scheduled to be sentenced on July 31, 2019.          

             “Bank robberies are violent crimes that can inflict fear and endanger bank employees, patrons, and the public,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “As part of our effort to combat violent crime, we will work closely with our law enforcement partners to prosecute those who are responsible for bank robberies in the Granite State.”

             This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Dover Police Department.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Krasinski.
