Vermont Man Pleads Guilty to Bank Robbery
CONCORD - Trevor Allen, 29, of Bellows Falls, Vermont, pleaded guilty in federal court to bank robbery, Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today.
According to court documents and statements made in court, on June 28, 2018, Allen walked into a bank in Charlestown, New Hampshire and handed a teller a note demanding him to empty the money in his drawer. Allen claimed he was armed. Allen was given a total of $2,485 in cash by the teller. Investigators later found Allen’s fingerprint on the note.
Allen is scheduled to be sentenced on February 22, 2022.
“Bank robberies are violent crimes that can present a real risk of danger to anyone inside or near the bank,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Farley. “As part of our effort to combat violent crime in New Hampshire, we work closely with the FBI and our law enforcement partners to identify and prosecute those who commit bank robberies and other violent offenses in the Granite State.”
“When anyone enters a bank intent on robbing it, even if a weapon isn’t shown, there is always a chance someone could get hurt, or worse. Trevor Allen instilled fear in innocent employees and bystanders while committing armed robbery, and today, he has finally accepted responsibility for his actions,” said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division. “The FBI will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to aggressively investigate anyone who targets our financial institutions for their own personal benefit.”
This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Charlestown Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Krasinski.
