Pembroke man pleads guilty to Maine bank robberies

Prosecutors said a Pembroke man has pleaded guilty in Maine to armed bank robbery charges.

The charges against 38-year-old Daniel Barry stem from armed bank robberies of Kennebunk Savings in Eliot on Oct. 19 and Ocean Communities Federal Credit Union in Sanford on Oct. 26.

Court records say Barry, who pleaded guilty yesterday, vaulted over the teller counter and took nearly $8,000 in the Kennebunk robbery while someone else pointed a gun at tellers.

Authorities said Barry also was the source of a gun used to rob over $8,500 from the Sanford credit union. Both firearms were recovered during a search of Barry’s residence.

His sentence is pending.
