A Morristown NJ man recently admitted to robbing a local bank.
The suspect is a 30-year-old resident of Morristown in Morris County, New Jersey. He was arrested a short time after he entered the TD Bank located on South Street in Morristown and stole $688 from a bank teller. The suspect reportedly handed the victim a threatening note and demanded cash. The note indicated that the suspect had a weapon and would use it against the bank employee; however, police later found no weapon on the suspect.
Morristown police officers captured the suspect when he went to a Walgreen’s store located near the bank and tried to spend some of the stolen money.
The suspect ultimately avoided trial in Morris County Superior Court by reaching a plea agreement with the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office. The suspect pleaded guilty to second degree robbery charges. In exchange for the suspect pleading guilty to the theft crime, prosecutors are expected to recommend that he be sentenced to 3-5 years in New Jersey State Prison.
