BANGOR — A Greyhound bus driver accused of robbing a bank in Orono has pleaded not guilty in federal court.

Magistrate Judge Margaret Kravchuk accepted Robert Ferguson’s plea today. Trial date will be set later for the 47-year-old Ferguson.

Ferguson, who is from Lowell, Mass., was arrested last month as the FBI sought help in catching a suspect in at least 10 bank robberies in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Hampshire. The FBI dubbed the suspect the “burly bandit” because of his stocky build.

The Bangor Daily News says Ferguson will be held without bail pending trial in Maine.
