Bank robbery suspect arrested in Hernando County


PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Panama City police have identified the man they believe robbed the Summit Bank on 23rd Street on September 14th.

Police say John Goff, 46, of Alabama, walked into the bank after 2 p.m. and demanded money from the tellers. No weapon was displayed during the robbery.

Police say Goff took off into the woods and escaped the area.

Police worked with local, state, and federal agencies, including the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the FBI, to identify Goff.

Goff was arrested in Hernando County Wednesday following another bank robbery.

They say he is wanted in connection to four other bank robberies throughout the state of Florida. Goff has been arrested before in Florida and served 15 years in prison for robbing banks.

Detectives arrested Andrea Kennedy, 53, of Alabama, as well. She is believed to have been a co-conspirator. Detectives say Kennedy aided Goff before the robbery in Panama City days prior to the robbery while the area was scouted to prepare for the crime.

Police say Goff will soon face federal charges for the series of bank robberies.
