PORTLAND, Maine — A New Hampshire man pleaded guilty Thursday to three armed bank robbery charges and is facing up to 25 years in prison on each count.

A sentencing date for Marvin Ansteth, Jr., 40, has yet to be set, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.

The charges stem from armed robberies of People’s United Bank in Exeter, N.H., Meredith Village Savings Bank in Alton, N.H. and Kennebunk Savings in Eliot in October 2013.

Court documents state Anseth served as the getaway driver for the three robberies, wherein more than $17,000 was stolen. Also charged in the robberies were Daniel Barry of Pembroke, N.H, Brianne Mone of Dover, N.H. and Philip Gage of Somersworth, N.H.

In addition to prison time, Anseth also faces fines of up to $250,000 on all three counts.
