A serial bank robbery suspect is facing up to 125 years in prison if he's convicted of federal charges.

Federal authorities have indicted Carl Anthony Goodwin for his alleged role in the robberies and attempted robbery of several banks in Philadelphia in June and July, U.S. Attorney Zane David Memerger announced Monday.

Goodwin's alleged crime spree actually began with the robbery of a Dunkin Donuts in Philadelphia on June 17, said federal officials.

Goodwin then escaped on June 19 from confinement at the Kintock Residential Reentry Center, where he had gone after serving a 30-month prison sentence for two attempted bank robberies in Philadelphia.

The next day, and again on July 2, officials said Goodwin robbed the Citizens Bank branch on Stenton Avenue in Philadelphia.

Goodwin also attempted to rob a Bank of America branch on Aramingo Avenue on June 21 and robbed a Beneficial Bank on Chew Avenue on June 24 and a Wells Fargo Bank branch on East Allegheny Avenue on July 7, officials said.

Goodwin, 28, was arrested at a home in Reading on July 11. If convicted, federal officials said he faces a maximum sentence of 125 years in prison and a fine of up to $1.75 million.
