Pequannock NJ police recently linked a man to an armed robbery that was committed four years ago.
According to authorities, the suspect robbed a customer of the Wachovia Bank located on Route 23 in Pompton Plains, New Jersey. The incident occurred in August 2011.
The suspect, along with another person, allegedly approached a customer in the parking lot of the bank. The victim was on his way to make a deposit at the bank.
The suspect reportedly had a handgun when he demanded that the victim hand over cash.
Once the suspect and his accomplice had more than $5,000 in cash given to them by the victim, they allegedly fled the scene.
Police investigated the theft incident and eventually arrested one person. However, the other culprit was not identified until recently.
The 32-year-old suspect, who is from Irvington, was already in Northern State Prison in Newark NJ on unrelated charges when law enforcement was able to connect him to the earlier robbery.
The suspect now faces new criminal charges for armed robbery, theft of movable property, unlawful possession of a handgun, and other weapons offenses.
While the charges are pending, the suspect’s bail was set at $200,000. He remains in Northern State Prison for his earlier conviction.
