Denville NJ Bank Robbery SuspectPolice in Denville NJ recently arrested a Morris Plains NJ man accused of robbing a bank in December.

According to a Denville police affidavit, the 31-year-old suspect entered the TD Bank branch in Denville not long after the bank opened for the day. The suspect then allegedly gave a bank teller a Christmas card and demanded cash.

The bank teller reportedly handed the suspect an unspecified amount of money. The suspect then exited the building and allegedly fled the scene in a black, four-door sedan.

Denville NJ police were alerted to the alleged theft and immediately began to investigate. Investigators obtained surveillance video footage which shows the suspect at the time of the incident. Police later distributed still photos from the video footage to the media.
