Newark Pair Charged With Another Bank Robbery
Two Newark residents accused of robbing a northern New Jersey bank last week are now charged in another bank robbery that occurred earlier this month.
Union County prosecutors announced Monday that 33-year-old Avery Spotswood and 29-year-old Quiama Harris have been charged in the Dec. 18 robbery at the Investors Bank branch in Springfield. That comes just days after they were charged in a Dec. 23 robbery of a Santander Bank branch in Parsippany.
Spotswood and Harris both remain jailed in Morris County, with Spotswood's bail set at $200,000 and Harris' set at $100,000. It's not known if either suspect has retained a lawyer.
Spotswood now faces two counts each of robbery, conspiracy and making terroristic threats, while Harris is charged with two counts of conspiracy.
