Harrisburg man charged with robbing 14 banks, 2 in York County
A Harrisburg man has been indicted on federal charges that he robbed 14 central Pennsylvania banks, including two in York County, of a combined total of more than $50,000.
The grand-jury indictment against him alleges that Andre Mosley, 47, robbed the Santander Bank branch at 888 W. Broadway in Red Lion on Feb. 12 and the Northwest Savings Bank branch at 2220 S. Queen St. in York Township on Feb 17.
The indictment alleges that between November and February, he stole more than $52,295 combined from the 14 banks, which were spread throughout Dauphin, Franklin and Cumberland counties, in addition to the two in York County. He's accused of stealing $4,670 from the Red Lion bank and $4,250 from the York Township one.
At the Red Lion bank, the man now alleged to be Mosley, his hood drawn tight around his face, passed the teller a note demanding money, but never displayed a weapon, police said at the time. York Area Regional Police asked the public for help in identifying the robber, who fled on foot after receiving the cash.
Each of the 14 robbery charges Mosley faces carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison — that means he could be sentenced to as many as 280 years behind bars.
Along with the departments that cover the various municipalities where the robberies occurred — in the case of the York County robberies, York Area Regional Police for the York Township one and state police for the Red Lion one — the Violent Crimes Task Force of the Harrisburg FBI office and Harrisburg Police contributed to the investigation.
