Acting Morris County Prosecutor Fredric Knapp and Acting Union County Prosecutor Grace Park say they’ve arrested 33-year-old Avery Spotswood and 29-year-old Quiama Harris for the robbery of a Santander Bank branch in Parsippany.

Spotswood allegedly handed a note to a teller saying he had a bomb.

Both suspects are being held at the Morris County jail, Harris on $100,000 bail and Spotswood on $200,000 bail. It wasn’t immediately known if they’d retained attorneys.

Authorities say detectives from Parsippany-Troy Hills and Springfield shared information to connect a vehicle that had been in the vicinity of a Springfield bank robbery to Harris. They say Spotswood was eventually identified from bank surveillance camera images.
