Augusta, Maine — Two New Hampshire residents face up to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to armed robbery charges stemming from a string of bank robberies last year in Maine and New Hampshire.

Thirty-three-year-old Crystal Dufault and 46-year-old Joseph Richards, both of Manchester, pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court in Portland.

The charges arise from the Aug. 3 robbery of Norway Savings Bank in Freeport; Maine; the Aug. 14 robbery of Franklin Savings Bank in Franklin, New Hampshire; the Sept. 4 robbery of University Credit Union in Portland; and the Sept. 12 robbery of TD Bank in Lewiston.

According to court documents, a pellet gun was brandished during each of the robberies.
