PORTLAND, Maine — A New York man pleaded guilty on Friday to a robbery charge in a 2014 holdup of a Saco Rite Aid, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Scott McMahon, 32, of Orchard Park faces up to 20 years behind bars and a fine of $250,000. He will be sentenced at a later date.

The robbery McMahon is responsible for occurred in September of 2014.

McMahon entered the Main Street store and told an employee at the pharmacy counter “I’m watching you,” and handed the employee a note demanding OxyContin or “it will get ugly.”

The employee complied and McMahon fled with the drugs.

Saco police conducted the investigation.
