Man Allegedly Committed Robbery at Crown Bank in Newark, New Jersey

Newark NJ Bank Robbery AttorneysNewark NJ law enforcement officials are on the lookout for a suspect accused of robbing a local bank.

The bank robbery went down during the afternoon at the Crown Bank located on Ferry Street in Newark, NJ. The suspect reportedly walked into the building, approached a bank teller, and handed a note to the employee. The note instructed the bank worker to hand over cash.

Once the suspect had an undisclosed amount of money, he quickly ran out of the bank and fled the area on foot. Witnesses last saw the suspect heading east on Ferry Street.

Someone at the bank dialed 911 and notified the Newark Police Department, which dispatched officers to the area. However, by the time Newark NJ cops got to the scene of the robbery, the suspect was long gone.

The Newark Police Department and the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office are conducting a joint investigation into the daytime bank robbery. At this time, investigators have not yet been able to determine the identity of the suspect.

If police can eventually figure out the identity of the culprit, he would probably be charged with robbery. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:15-1, a person who commits a theft while putting another person in fear of immediate bodily injury can be charged with a second degree felony. A conviction on second degree robbery charges could lead to a sentence of 5-10 years in NJ State Prison.

Since the suspect is not believed to have used a deadly weapon, such as a firearm or a knife, during the commission of the theft, he is unlikely to face first degree armed robbery charges.
