Portsmouth man who robbed bank, fled on bike gets prison sentence
Jamie Pointer, 28, of Ledgewood Drive, Portsmouth, pleaded guilty in Rockingham County Superior Court to a single count of robbery.
Pointer walked into the Newburyport Five Cent Savings Bank in Portsmouth last Sept. 27 and passed a note to a teller that read, “armed men would take the building by force” if he was not given money, according to an indictment.
Pointer fled the bank and rode away on a bicycle.
A witness had also told police that they had seen a man that matched Pointer’s description changing his clothes downtown.
A police detective thought she recognized Pointer as someone familiar to law enforcement, Springer said. The detective went by Pointer’s home and later executed a search warrant at his residence, Springer said.
