FORT PIERCE, Fla. -- A Daytona Beach man, Anthony William Carpino, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to committing four bank robberies.

Carpino, 45, pleaded guilty to four counts of bank robbery. For each count of conviction, he faces up to 20 years in prison, to be followed by a term of supervised release.


Sentencing is scheduled for June 27, 2017.

According to court records, Carpino robbed a Daytona Beach Wells Fargo Bank on March 5, 2016. He handed the teller a bank deposit slip that read, "Give me money I have a gun." 

Carpino directed the teller to "Take the money out of the drawer, put it in a bag." He was arrested the next day and while out on bond committed three additional bank robberies.

Authorities say he robbed a second Daytona Beach Wells Fargo Bank on Oct. 11, 2016, a TD Bank in Palm Bay on Oct. 14, 2016 and a Wells Fargo Bank in Palm City on Oct. 17, 2016.
