Maine Man Sentenced To Five Years In Prison For Robbing Credit Union

          CONCORD, N.H. – United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced that Marc Beaulieu, 31, of Caribou, Maine, was sentenced to serve 60 months in federal prison for robbing a credit union in Somersworth, New Hampshire.

          According to documents filed with the court and statements made in court, Beaulieu entered the Service Credit Union in Somersworth on November 18, 2016, approached a teller, and handed the teller a note that stated “Give me all your money and no one will get hurt.”  The teller gave Beaulieu a sum of money that included a packet of bait bills.  Beaulieu was wearing a camouflage jacket, dark hat, khaki pants, and bright red or orange sneakers.  Surveillance film captured Beaulieu fleeing the bank and entering a Subaru.

          After law enforcement released an image of the bank robber to the media, numerous individuals contacted the police and identified the robber as Beaulieu.  Police also obtained video from a convenience store near the credit union that captured Beaulieu in the Subaru and putting on the camouflage jacket.  Beaulieu was arrested in Portsmouth on November 21, 2016, and the camouflage jacket, the sneakers, and other evidence connecting him to the robbery were recovered.

          Beaulieu previously pleaded guilty on April 27, 2018.

          “Robberies and other violent crimes present a substantial threat to public safety,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “In order to protect our community, we work closely with our law enforcement partners to arrest, prosecute, and incarcerate those who commit these dangerous crimes.”

        The Somersworth Police Department led the investigation of the case with the assistance of the Portsmouth Police Department, the United States Marshals Service, and the Strafford County Department of Corrections.  The Federal Bureau of Investigation also provided assistance.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Donald A. Feith.
