Hampden man admits to Bangor credit union robbery

Written by

BANGOR - A Hampden man charged with robbing a Bangor credit union earlier this year has chosen to admit to committing the crime.

Ronald Tilley, 59, told a federal judge on Monday that he robbed the Down East Credit Union on March 27.

 

According to court documents, Tilley got away with just over $8,700 after he told the teller he had a gun and would shoot if the person didn't comply.

 

He then fled the state.

 

Tilley was picked up in Connecticut for shoplifting four days after the robbery, and was indicted a couple of days later in U.S. District Court in Bangor.

 

Tilley entered his guilty plea before Judge Lance Walker.

 

A sentencing date has not yet been set.

 

He faces up to 20 years in prison.
