NH woman pleads guilty to 2 bank robberies

Posted: Updated:

YORK, Maine (AP) - Maine police say a New Hampshire woman has admitted robbing banks in York and Conway, N.H.

York police say 36-year-old Roxanne Esty, also known as Roxanne Gillis of Gorham, N.H., pleaded guilty to both robberies on Wednesday, after waiving extradition.

Police say she robbed the Bank of New Hampshire in Conway on May 11 and the Kennebunk Savings Bank in York on May 29, 2012, after standing in line and presenting the teller with a note.

Police have not said how much cash was stolen in either robbery.

The Portsmouth Herald reports that Esty is a former nurse who had her nursing license suspended in December 2011 for allegedly diverting drugs, according to the New Hampshire Board of Nursing website.
