East Orange NJ Man Pleads Guilty to Robbing PNC Bank in Bloomfield, New Jersey

East Orange Bank Robbery AttorneysA man from East Orange NJ has pleaded guilty to charges of robbing a bank in Bloomfield, New Jersey.

According to federal attorneys, the 47-year-old suspect admitted to committing the theft at the PNC Bank located on the 400 block of Broad Street in June 2014.

According to court documents, the suspect walked into the bank and wrote “I HAVE GUN 100, 20, 50 NO DIE PACKS” on the back of a deposit slip. He then allegedly handed the deposit slip to a bank teller and threatened to shoot her if she triggered the alarm.

After the bank teller gave the suspect $1,340 in cash, he ran out of the bank and tried to flee the scene.

Remarkably, the suspect was captured by an off-duty corrections officer who happened to be a customer at the bank. The corrections officer, who was armed with his service weapon, identified himself as a police officer and then instructed the suspect to get on the ground. The officer then detained the suspect until local police were able to get to the scene.

Since the suspect did not have a gun on him at the time of his arrest, he was not charged with any weapons offenses.

The suspect recently appeared in U.S. District Court in Newark NJ and pleaded guilty to the bank robbery charges.

Now the suspect is set to be sentenced on June 15. The suspect could potentially be sentenced to 20 years in federal prison.
