TROY (WWJ) – Police have arrested a 45-year-old man who they say is responsible for at least four bank robberies — three of them at the same TCF branch in Troy.

A weapon was implied but not seen in any of the cases, according to police. No one was injured.

In a news release, Troy police thanked multiple law enforcement agencies for their help on the case, including the Clawson Police Department; the Troy Special Investigations Unit, which consists of officers from Auburn Hills Police Department, Birmingham Police Department, Bloomfield Township Police Department, the Royal Oak Police Department; and the FBI Oakland County Gangs and Violent Crimes Task Force.

Goff was arraigned in 52-4 District Court Wednesday on four counts of bank robbery.
