BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A Chelsea woman has pleaded guilty to her role in a pharmacy robbery in Augusta last year.

Federal prosecutors say 21-year-old Nicole Breton pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in Bangor to being an accessory after the fact.

Breton faces up to 10 years in prison, a $125,000 fine and restitution when she is sentenced at a date to be determined.

Prosecutors say Dominic Pomerleau robbed a Rite Aid pharmacy of oxycodone last September. Breton, waiting for Pomerleau in a getaway car, emptied the pills from the bottles and threw the empty bottles out the car window.

Pomerleau, Breton, and the driver of the car fled to Breton’s residence where took many of the stolen pills. Pomerleau pleaded guilty in January and awaits sentencing.
