Another Bank Robbed, But With an Arrest This Time
Latest incident reported by prosecutor is the sixth in Morris County in a two-month span.
The sixth bank robbery in a two-month span has occurred in Morris County, but this time an alleged robber was arrested, according to Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi.
The PNC Bank on Route 46 in Parsippany was robbed at 11 a.m. on Wednesday by a man who fled the scene, Bianchi said. The man did not show a weapon, Bianchi said. According to Bianchi, a man was stopped and arrested by Secaucus Police on Route 3 without incident.
The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crime Unit, Parsippany Police Department, Morris County Sherriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Section and the FBI are investigating, Bianchi said.
This is the third bank robbery within the last 60 days in Parsippany. On July 20, a man robbed an Indus American Bank inside a Pathmark on Route 46. On Aug. 27, the Provident Bank on Smith Road was robbed.
In multiple cases, a well-dressed man in a hat and dress suit was reported to have robbed the banks. A man fitting that description was spotted inside a Kinnelon bank last week, but no robbery occurred.
