Former FBI 10 Most Wanted Fugitive Charged in NJ Today

Arrested in last month in connection with a Bergen County bank robbery, John Stevens will make his initial court appearance today in Newark. Stevens was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives List in 1988 in connection with unrelated robberies.

On April 15, Stevens allegedly robbed the TD Bank, in Oakland, N.J. according to documents filed in this case and statements made in court. Bank employees say and video surveillance shows a man wearing a blue jacket and a baseball hat entered the bank and approached one of the tellers.

The robber was carrying a zipper pouch, which he opened and showed the teller. Inside was what appeared to be a black handgun. The robber fled after the teller gave him money.

Roughly 20 minutes after the heist, police stopped a car that was reported stolen. The driver was identified as Stevens. Law enforcement arrested Stevens and found a TD Bank bag filled with money in the car.

If convicted of the bank robbery charge, Stevens faces 20 years behind bars and a $250,000 fine.
