BANGOR, Maine – A young man who robbed a downtown Penobscot County FCU earlier this year, then stole more than $4,000 in jewelry from his mother, will spend more than three years behind bars, based in part on her identifying him to police.

The 20-year-old Donovan Steen was identified after the January credit union heist by his mother, who saw surveillance photos taken at the credit union that were broadcast locally, then went to the police.

During the credit union holdup, Steen handed the teller “a note that said he had a gun” and demanded $1,000 in cash. He left on foot after getting the money.

Surveillance images were released and police received several calls, including one from Steen’s mother, who identified her son as the person in the video images, according to police.

Steen was arrested Jan. 19 after being interviewed by investigators, who also had physical evidence, including his shoes, connecting him to the robbery.
