PORTLAND, Maine — Three people who police say were responsible for robbing two banks in York County were arrested in New Hampshire Tuesday.

Daniel Barry, 38, of Pembroke, N.H.; Marvin Eugene Ansteth, 40, of Somersworth, N.H.; and Brianne Mone, 27, of Dover, N.H.; were charged with bank robbery, according to U.S. Attorney Thomas Delahanty.

The trio allegedly held up the Kennebunk Savings in Eliot on Oct. 19 and the Ocean Communities Federal Credit Union in Sanford on Oct. 26.

In both robberies, Barry held up both banks at gunpoint while Anseth drove the getaway car for the Kennebunk Savings robbery, and Mone drove the getaway car in the Sanford robbery, Delahanty said.

Investigation also allegedly revealed that Anseth was the getaway driver for armed robberies in Exeter, N.H., on Oct. 7, and Alton, N.H., on Oct. 10. Mone apparently was also a getaway driver in an armed robbery of a Citizens Bank in Somersworth, N.H., on Aug. 21.

Court documents indicate Phillip Gage, who was arrested on Oct. 31, had a role in all five robberies, Delahanty said.

Barry, Mone and Ansteth were expected to be arraigned in Portland on Tuesday. They face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
