NASHUA -- A city woman will serve 10 to 20 years in prison for an armed home invasion where she bound a 92-year-old man with duct tape June 8.

City police announced that Maryanne Jacobsmeyer pleaded guilty and was sentenced Wednesday in Hillsborough County Superior Court.

Jacobsmeyer, 51, of 11 Lucier St., apt. 3, was originally indicted on 10 felonies, including charges of burglary, theft by deception, robbery with a weapon, falsifying physical evidence and criminal restraint.

Police said Jacobsmeyer broke into Kenneth Annis' Atherton Avenue residence during the early morning hours of June 8 claiming to be armed.

She secured Annis with duct tape while he was in his bed and demanded the PIN numbers to his bank and debit cards, according to a police affidavit.

Jacobsmeyer stole the man's car, driving it to a local cash machine to withdraw money from his accounts, according to court documents. She was able to access more than $700 using several cards.

The victim's daughter, who assists her father with care and finances, reported that Kohl's department store informed her of fraudulent activity on Annis' charge card, including a $450 bracelet purchase and some children's clothing, says court records.

Surveillance cameras at Kohl's and the banks helped identify Jacobsmeyer as the thief, according to court documents.

During their investigation, police determined that Jacobsmeyer had allegedly committed a second burglary at the same residence prior to June 8, police said in a release.

Jacobsmeyer has a history of theft-related arrests, including convictions for theft by unauthorized taking in 2015 in Nashua and receiving stolen property in 2008 in Laconia.
