A Stoughton man was charged today with the armed hold-up of an Eastern Bank branch at 102 Lynn St. in Peabody on Monday, the US Attorney's office in Boston reports.
Mark LePage, 47, faces up to 25 years in prison for the robbery. The FBI charges LePage put a gun to the head of the man in front of him and demanded all his money. Then, the FBI says, he used the gun to get additional money from a teller.
AlertNewEngland reports he got away with $20,000 and "bait money" and that LePage, who already has a lengthy record, was living in Revere.
