NASHUA — A city woman accused of binding a 92-year-old man with duct tape during an armed robbery earlier this summer is facing new charges.
Maryanne Jacobsmeyer, 51, of 11 Lucier St., Apt. 3, has been indicted by a Hillsborough County Superior Court grand jury on 10 felony charges for the June 8 burglary.
She has been held on $250,000 cash bail since her arrest last month, and will be arraigned on all of the charges on Friday, according to a court clerk.
Police said Jacobsmeyer allegedly broke into an Atherton Avenue residence during the early morning hours of June 8, told the occupant she was armed and bound him with duct tape. Then she demanded the passcode to his bank and debit cards, according to a police affidavit on file at the 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
Jacobsmeyer is accused of stealing the man’s car and using it to drive to a local cash machine to withdraw more than $700 from his accounts, states court documents.
She also used his credit card to buy a $450 bracelet and some children’s clothing, according to court records.
This week, Jacobsmeyer was indicted on four felony charges of theft by unauthorized taking, two charges of burglary and one count each of theft by deception, robbery with a weapon, falsifying physical evidence and criminal restraint.
Jacobsmeyer is accused of “exposing (the victim) to risk of serious bodily injury when she duct-taped (his) hands and feet and blindfolded him,” states the newly filed court documents.
She also allegedly placed the man “in fear of immediate use of physical force when she claimed that a co-conspirator was armed with a knife,” the indictments say.
The newest charges include criminal restraint and an additional charge of theft by unauthorized taking for a separate incident on March 2 when Jacobsmeyer allegedly stole a purse from a person in Nashua, according to court records.
