A "suspicious" man seen at a Kinnelon bank Tuesday afternoon may be linked to a series of recent bank robberies throughout the county this summer, the Morris County Prosecutor's Office said.
According to Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi, Kinnelon police responded to the PNC Bank inside the Meadtown Shopping Center at about 3:10 p.m. after a "suspicious" white male had been seen. The male exited the bank without incident, the prosecutor said.
Bianchi released information on Twitter that described the male wearing an outfit similar to that of the male who has been sought for other robberies throughout the county, including the robbery of a Lincoln Park bank on Thursday.
Bianchi said the male was described as 6-feet tall, clean shaven and wearing wire-rim eyeglasses. He was also described as wearing a green sports jacket, light-colored button-down dress shirt, black slacks and a tan baseball cap.
The man authorities believe to be responsible for Thursday's robbery was described as a white male in his 20s or 30s, between 6-feet and 6-foot-2.
He was seen wearing a straw cowboy hat, olive green blazer, white dress shirt, dark-colored pants, eyeglasses and black Nike shoes, the prosecutor's office said. Bank robberies in Parsippany and Mount Olive in July and another Lincoln Park bank in August.
