UNC student returns to state to face bank robbery charge
Posted November 23, 2011
Raleigh, N.C. — A University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill senior is back in the state after his arrest last week in New Jersey in connection with two local bank robberies.
Gordon Miller Goodwin, 22, was arrested in Atlantic City, N.J., in connection with a robbery at a SunTrust Bank branch in Apex on Nov. 7.
He is also a suspect in the Nov. 3 robbery of a SunTrust Bank in Youngsville, police there said.
Goodwin surrendered Nov. 13 to police on charges of common-law robbery after his mother's plea on TV for him to surrender. He arrived in Wake County around 9 a.m. Wednesday and was released on a $25,000 bond shortly thereafter.
