Woman Who Allegedly Robbed Glen Rock NJ Bank Is Arrested in Atlantic City
The FBI recently captured a woman accused of holding up a bank in Glen Rock NJ last month.
According to federal authorities, the 51-year-old suspect was wearing a red wig when she walked into the Glen Rock Savings Bank and approached bank tellers. The suspect then allegedly pointed a long-barreled handgun at the bank employees and threatened to shoot them.
The suspect allegedly ordered the bank tellers to give her cash from the vault. She then walked out of the building and drove away in a white Porsche.
Authorities said that the suspect ended up stealing more than $100,000 in the theft.
FBI investigators and Glen Rock police conducted an investigation. They were able to obtain surveillance footage which reportedly shows the suspect committing the robbery.
Investigators also allegedly discovered that the suspect used her cell phone near the bank around the time of the armed robbery.
Additionally, police found a paintball gun which is said to match descriptions of the handgun that was used during the bank robbery.
The FBI ultimately caught the suspect at an Atlantic City New Jersey casino just one day after the bank robbery. According to prosecutors, the suspect was seen handing a couple of large stacks of cash to a cashier at the Borgata casino.
The suspect recently had to appear in U.S. District Court in Newark NJ for a hearing. At the hearing, a district court judge ordered that the suspect be detained while awaiting indictment.
If the suspect is eventually convicted of armed robbery, she could face up to 20 years in federal prison.
