Manchester Man Sentenced To Six Years In Prison For Bank Robbery
CONCORD, N.H. - Justin M. Brady-Muller, 28, of Manchester, was sentenced to serve 72 months in federal prison for bank robbery, Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today.
According to court documents and statements made in court, on September 14, 2016, Brady-Muller entered a Bank of America branch office on Hooksett Road in Manchester and presented a teller a note stating "This is a robbery." The note demanded that the teller hand over all of the money in her drawer and stated that no one would get hurt as long as the teller did not include any dye packs or "funny money." Bank security images showed that the robber was wearing a sweatshirt with distinctive lettering. The teller complied with the demand note and the robber left the bank with both the money and the note. Police were able to preliminarily identify the robber as Brady-Muller on the basis of, among other things, tips from the public. A search warrant later executed on a car driven by Brady-Muller confirmed that preliminary identification when it yielded a hand-written demand note resembling the one described by the bank teller and a sweatshirt with the same distinctive lettering on the sweatshirt worn by the robber in the bank surveillance images.
Brady-Muller pleaded guilty on May 25, 2017.
In addition to the term of imprisonment, Brady-Muller’s sentence included (i) an order requiring him to pay back to Bank of America the money that he stole and (ii) a term of supervised release of three years during which he will have to abide by certain rules and conditions set by the court.
This matter was investigated by the Manchester Police Department with the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Bill Morse.
