PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Portland Police Chief Michael Sauschuck says suspects are now in custody for all six bank robberies in Maine’s largest city dating back to May.

Sauschuck told reporters Monday that the old saying that “crime does not pay” still applies. He noted that disguises and advanced planning haven’t stopped police from zeroing in on suspects.

He says all of the suspects are not yet charged with robbery, but that they’re all in custody.

The most recent robbery was on Friday.

The state penalty for bank robbery is a sentence of up to 30 years in prison. That’s a harsher penalty that the 20-year penalty for bank robbery under federal law.
