Frank Mione, 47, of 16 Birchwood Lane, Milford, was charged with robbery, a class A felony, and being a felon in possession of a firearm, also a felony.
Mione was arraigned in Merrimack District Court on Tuesday afternoon by Judge Clifford Kinghorn on the charges, and due to his criminal history and the belief by police that he poses a significant threat to the public, Kinghorn ordered Mione held on $250,000 cash only bail.
According to Merrimack Police, Mione entered the TD Bank at 300 Daniel Webster Highway on Aug. 21 armed with a Mossberg short barrel shotgun, which he used when he threatened to shoot two of the tellers at the bank if they did not give him cash. He made it out of the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.
According to a story in the Huffington Post from June 14, Mione is also the suspected getaway car driver in a bank robbery spree in midtown Manhattan. According to the story, 20-year-old Maverick Madore, who's believed to have robbed five banks in New Hampshire, went on a midtown bank robbing spree. Madore apparently tried to flee on foot through the Lincoln Tunnel after the car he was riding in, allegedly driven by Mione, crashed. According to the story, Mione escaped but Madore was apprehended.
Merrimack Police Lt. Denise Roy said Mione is the same Frank Mione suspected in the New York City robberies. She said he is the suspect in the case, but New York does not currently have an active arrest warrant for him.
