Goffstown man pleads guilty in credit union robbery
Police recovered $144 of the $4,600 stolen in the Dec. 3 robbery of the 1030 Candia Road credit union. It was hidden in the ceiling of a motel room Joseph Reynolds, 31, of 45 Larch St., had rented at the Econolodge in Manchester.
The Manchester Police Department's SWAT team arrested Reynolds at the motel after a brief standoff the day after the robbery.
Reynolds pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court to a federal bank robbery charge. Officers recognized him from images captured on the credit union's surveillance cameras.
After his arrest, he told police he had started "using" again and admitted to criminal activity including robbing Triangle Credit Union, according to documents on file in federal court.
On the day of the robbery, Reynolds entered the credit union, approached a teller and handed her a note which read, “This is a Robbery- I am armed - Slide over - All the Cash-Large Bills on the Bottum (sic) - and no one gets-Hurt."
The teller told police she looked up and the man put his left hand into his coat or sweatshirt pocket. She believed he was going to show her a gun although she did not see one. She handed money to the robber who took it, put it in his pockets and walked out.
Reynolds fled the credit union in a black Toyota pickup truck with a cap on the bed, which police said he stole during a burglary earlier that day at the Midas muffler shop on South Willow Street.
Reynolds faces up to 20 years in prison. His sentencing is set for July 17.
