CONCORD — A former Vermont man was sentenced to more than six years in prison for robbing a Charlestown bank four years ago.

Trevor Allen, formerly of Bellows Falls, Vt., was sentenced in a Concord courtroom on Wednesday to 77 months in federal prison after pleading guilty last November to robbing the Claremont Savings Bank branch in Charlestown in 2018, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for New Hampshire.

Allen, 30, entered the Claremont Savings Bank branch on Main Street in Charlestown on the afternoon of June 28, 2018, and handed the teller a note demanding money and flashed a weapon, which was later determined to be a BB gun, prosecutors said.

The teller handed over to Allen $2,485 in cash, all of which was as captured on surveillance cameras and broadcast on local news outlets, which helped police to identify and nab the suspect two days later, authorities said.
