PORTLAND, Maine — An Ohio man accused of robbing a Portland bank on Tuesday is expected to be returned to Maine to face charges, according to court documents.
Gooding made his initial court appearance in Ohio on Wednesday, and a judge signed an order requesting he be brought back to the Pine Tree State.
According to a police affidavit, Gooding had used an Ohio driver’s license to rent a room at a Motel 6 in Portland on Nov. 8, with a scheduled checkout date of Tuesday, Nov. 13, the day the robbery occurred.
The affidavit indicated Gooding went to the Bangor Savings Bank branch on Brighton Avenue just after 9 a.m., demanded money from a teller and got away with approximately $1,543 in cash.
Gooding allegedly took a cab to the Greyhound bus station on Congress Street and purchased a one-way, $148 ticket from Portland to Youngstown, Ohio, which featured several stops along the way.
