PORTLAND — A Brunswick man faces a federal bank robbery charge in connection with the December robbery of University Credit Union on Forest Avenue.
Duane Toothaker faces a charge of bank robbery and aiding and abetting such conduct. The offense carries a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
Toothaker is accused of being the driver for the two juvenile males to the credit union on Dec. 21.
One of the juveniles told authorities that a man he knew as "D" convinced them to rob a bank, provided them with the robbery note and shared the money with them, according to an FBI affidavit released today.
A total of $2,731 was taken from the credit union.
