Manchester Man Sentenced to 46 Months in Prison for Bank Robbery and Attempted Convenience Store Robbery
CONCORD, N.H. – Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced that Jonathan Faucher, 39, of Manchester, New Hampshire, pleaded guilty to attempting to rob a convenience store and robbing a bank in Manchester.
Court filings and statements made in court established that shortly after midnight on September 28, 2016, Faucher entered a 7-Eleven on Maple Street in Manchester, New Hampshire. After ordering a pack of cigarettes, Faucher brandished a box-cutter and told the clerk to “give me all the money if you don’t want to get hurt.” The clerk behind the counter responded by brandishing a pizza cutter at Faucher, who fled the area without any money.
A few days later, on October 3, 2016, Faucher robbed a TD Bank branch on Franklin Street, in Manchester, New Hampshire. Faucher handed a note to a bank teller demanding money and claiming that he had a gun. The bank teller handed over $600 and Faucher fled the bank on foot, but Manchester Police responding to the robbery apprehended him just a few blocks from the scene of the crime.
The case was investigated by the Manchester Police Department, with assistance from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shane Kelbley.
