BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - An Ellsworth man who robbed two Bangor banks in less than a week has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison.
28-year-old Timothy Myers appeared in federal court in Bangor Wednesay after pleading guilty in June.
He was also ordered to pay more than $1,600 in restitution.
Police say in December of 2018, Myers robbed the TD Bank branch on Stillwater Avenue.
Court documents say he handed the teller a note that said, "Give me the money or I shoot."
The note also said no dye on the money and $1,000.
Five days later, on the day after Christmas, Myers robbed Key Bank on Bangor Mall Boulevard.
Court documents say he wrote a note to the teller similar to the first one.
Police say surveillance images released from the first robbery gave them a clear picture of Myers who was already on probation for forgery and theft.
