South Jersey’s armed serial bank robber still at large
Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man wanted for at least three armed robberies at banks in Camden County.
According to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, the two most recent incidents took place Wednesday morning at a TD Bank on the Black Horse Pike in Bellmawr and the BB&T Bank on the White Horse Pike in Lawnside. Police say the male suspect brandished a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded money from the teller, then took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled.
The same suspect is wanted in connection with a Sept. 6 robbery that took place at 10:30 a.m. at the TD Bank on College Drive in Blackwood. As in the two other robberies, the suspect demanded cash then fled on foot.
Police say no injuries were reported in any of the incidents.
The suspect, who was captured on surveillance video, is about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and 150 pounds. Police say he was seen wearing a white T-shirt, sunglasses and a baseball cap. Following the the incident, he was seen fleeing the area in a dark, two-door Mitsubishi, possibly a Lancer, with a rear spoiler. Authorities say the license plate partially read XA787, according to a witness who was unsure about the plate's state.
Police advise anyone who believes they have spotted the suspect to call 911, but they should not attempt to approach or apprehend him. Anyone with information is asked to contact Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Detectives Vince McCalla at 856-225-8569 or Tim Houck at 856-225-8506; Gloucester Township Det. Brian Farrell at 856-374-5706, Bellmawr Det. Bill Perna at 856-931-2121 ext. 224 or Lawnside Det. Mashea Snyder at 856-573-6205.
