Newark Man Faces Federal Bank Robbery Charges

Newark NJ Bank Robbery ChargesA 61-year-old Newark NJ man reportedly admitted to robbing a local bank last year.

According to authorities, the suspect entered the New York Community Bank in October 2013 and approached a teller. He allegedly told the teller that he needed to make a withdrawal; however, rather than giving the teller a withdrawal slip, he demanded that she hand over cash from her drawer.

Although the suspect did not brandish a weapon during the robbery, he is said to have “intimidated” the teller. Police also said that the suspect frightened another bank employee who tried to intervene during the robbery.
After taking the money, the suspect reportedly exited the bank and hailed a taxi.

A short time later, Newark police officers apprehended the suspect. They allegedly found $2,380 in stolen cash, as well as a bank withdrawal slip, on the suspect’s person.

During an appearance in federal court in Newark NJ last month, the suspect pleaded guilty to first degree bank robbery.

The suspect is scheduled to return to court in January 2015 for sentencing. Due to the serious nature of the charges, the suspect could be sentenced to 10–20 years in prison. Additionally, he could be fined as much as $250,000.
