2 men arrested on bank robbery charges

Police arrested two New Hampshire men on bank robbery charges last Saturday. The arrest happened in a wooded area in Saco, Maine, following a high-speed car chase.

Allegedly, the men robbed a bank in Lewiston at approximately 9 a.m. Police later spotted the alleged robbers riding in a minivan along a highway and began to chase them in a high speed pursuit. The minivan then came to a stop on the front lawn of a woman's home. The woman said that the men got out of the van with their guns and ran away on foot. The woman said that it is not an everyday Saturday morning event for two armed men to park their car on her front lawn.

Another resident reported that about 20 police cars showed up in pursuit of the men, who they chased across several backyards. One of the men was arrested quickly, but the other man escaped into a nearby wooded area. Later, the second man was arrested too, after police conducted an hour-long search of the woods. Miraculously, no one was hurt in the robbery or the chase.

According to a police spokesperson, the robbery case and its investigation have since been given to the FBI to handle.

No matter what the circumstances of a New Hampshire resident's arrest -- and no matter how serious the criminal charges brought against the person -- every accused person will have the right to defend him or herself against the charges in court. In the case of armed bank robbery allegations, a defendant will want to take the allegations very seriously because a conviction could result in the defendant serving many years behind bars.
