CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to six years in prison for his role in the robbery of a New Hampshire credit union in 2015.

Court documents say 32-year-old Derek Potocki, formerly of Manchester, pressured 28-year-old Melissa Bourcher to rob a bank for him. He selected the target and told her how to dress and disguise her appearance.

She entered the Members First Credit Union in Manchester and fled with over $6,000, which she split with Potocki.

Prosecutors say Bourcher bought heroin and overdosed. When paramedics were able to resuscitate her, large amounts of cash fell out of her clothing. She was arrested. Potocki was arrested in Massachusetts.

Potocki has been ordered to pay back the credit union. Boucher was sentenced to nearly 3 ½ years in prison.
