2010 Nashua bank robber gets 8-year federal prison term

NASHUA – The man who robbed two TD Banks in Nashua and Concord was sentenced to eight years in federal prison on Thursday.

Christian Ironfield, 35, received the 96-month sentence during a hearing at U.S. District Court in Concord, U.S. Attorney John Kacavas said.

Ironfield was arrested Nov. 26, 2010, in Hampton, a few days after robbing the TD Bank at Main and West Pearl streets on Nov. 23, 2010. Two days before that, Ironfield robbed a TD Bank branch in Concord, police said.

Several police departments in New Hampshire and Massachusetts had been looking for Ironfield, and police in Nashua and Concord had said he was dangerous and could have a firearm, although he didn’t show a weapon while robbing the banks.

At both banks, Ironfield wore no disguise as he handed tellers notes that demanded money, police said.

Nashua and Concord police investigated the case along with the FBI, Kacavas said.
