PORTLAND — A Westbrook woman on Wednesday pleaded guilty to federal charges stemming from her role in store and bank robberies.

Maria Mattson pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court on Wednesday to interference with commerce by robbery and conspiracy to commit bank robbery.

In January, Mattson drove Paul Sans, also of Westbrook, to the Pine Street Cumberland Farms in Portland, which he robbed, according to a court document.

In January and February, Mattson drove Sans to and from a number of banks and credit unions he robbed, according to the document. The institutions were University Credit Union on Forest Avenue in Portland, TruChoice Credit Union on Park Avenue in Portland, Evergreen Credit Union in Windham and Auburn Savings Bank in Lewiston, according to the document.

Sans earlier this week pleaded not guilty to four counts of bank robbery, interference with commerce by robbery and conspiracy to commit bank robbery.
