Newark NJ Police Searching for Suspects Who Committed Armed Robbery at Local Grocery Store

Newark New Jersey Robbery AttorneysNewark NJ police are asking for members of the public to provide help with their investigation into an armed robbery at a local grocery store.

The scary theft incident went down a short time before 2:00 p.m. at a grocery store located on the 100 block of Sherman Avenue in Newark, New Jersey. According to Newark officials, the suspects entered the grocery store and held up store workers.

After getting an undisclosed amount of cash from a store cashier, the suspects ran out of the store and fled the area on foot.

The Newark Police Department has already released video surveillance photos of the suspects inside the store during the robbery. The images reportedly show one of the suspects holding a handgun and pointing it at a store employee.

Thus far, Newark NJ investigators have been unable to determine the identities of the robbery suspects.

Now Anthony Ambrose, the Newark public safety director, is asking the public to be on the lookout for suspicious-looking individuals. Additionally, Ambrose has called on anyone with information about the recent grocery store robbery to come forward and contact local law enforcement.

If Newark NJ police can eventually identify and apprehend the suspects, it is likely that serious criminal charges for armed robbery would follow. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:15-1, anyone who uses a deadly weapon such as a handgun or a knife while committing a theft can be charged with first degree armed robbery. A conviction for this first degree felony could result in a sentence of 10-20 years in New Jersey State Prison.
