Oakland Man Sentenced for Credit Union Robbery

BANGOR, ME—United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Paul Garland, 27, of Oakland, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor by Chief Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to eight years’ imprisonment and five years of supervised release and was ordered to pay $9,147 in restitution for robbery of a credit union. Garland pled guilty to the charge on April 26, 2012.

Court records reveal that in June 2009, Garland robbed a teller at knife-point at the Taconnet Federal Credit Union in Skowhegan, Maine, obtaining $9,147. After the robbery, witnesses observed Garland flee from the credit union and leave the parking lot on the back of a motorcycle driven by Forrest T. “Teddy” Goodwin. Garland and Goodwin rode to Goodwin’s residence where they changed clothes and vehicles.

The investigation was conducted jointly by the Skowhegan Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
