A man charged with robbing banks in New Hampshire and carjacking in Massachusetts was sentenced to 11 years in federal prison, plus three years of supervised release, federal prosecutors said Thursday.
Michael Munroe, 34, of Raymond, N.H. was charged with robbing a bank in Ossipee and a credit union in Seabrook in March and April of 2016, the US Attorney’s office for New Hampshire said.
In each case, he passed a demand note to tellers, “threatening that he had a gun and demanding money,” prosecutors said in a press release.
But there was no evidence that Munroe was armed and he fled both scenes, the release said. He was ordered to pay $14,856.63 in restitution to the bank and victims.
Munroe, who was arrested in April, 2016, also admitted to carjacking three vehicles, including two in Massachusetts. On March 30, Munroe stole a Lexus ES300 from a woman in Tewksbury, and on the next day, a Toyota Highlander from a woman in Reading, according to prosecutors.
He also admitted to carjacking a Honda Pilot from a woman in Manchester, N.H., stealing a parked Honda CRV in Derry, N.H., and to assaulting a person at their home in Epping, the release stated.
