Police officers recently apprehended a man who allegedly robbed several banks in Morris County and Camden County, NJ.
The suspect has been accused of robbing a Morris County bank earlier this month, as well as three Camden County banks in the next few weeks. The Morris County bank that the suspect allegedly robbed is a TD Bank in Rockaway Township, New Jersey.
While allegedly committing the bank robberies, the suspect reportedly held a handgun and threatened to shoot and kill bank employees if they failed to give him cash.
Law enforcement investigated all of the NJ bank robberies, with investigators obtaining surveillance video footage that reportedly showed the suspect in the process of robbing the banks located in Camden County, NJ.
While authorities investigated the New Jersey bank thefts, the suspect reportedly robbed two more banks in Pennsylvania.
Police eventually identified the suspect and found him walking on the 1900 block of South 19th Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Camden County Prosecutor’s Office detectives and members of the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force ultimately apprehended the suspect.
The 34-year-old suspect, who resides in Leominster, Massachusetts, has been charged with several counts of armed robbery. The suspect has also been charged with multiple weapons offenses in connection with the bank robberies.
