Police Seeking Suspect in Absecon Bank Robbery
Around 9:20 Wednesday morning, the Absecon branch of TD Bank was robbed. Police are seeking the public’s help in locating the person involved.
Earlier this morning, according to a press release from the Absecon Police Department, a white male in his late 20’s to early 30’s entered the Absecon branch of TD Bank located on the White Horse Pike and handed the teller a note demanding money. No weapon was seen or mentioned. The male left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.
The suspect is described as a white male with red hair, approximately 6 feet tall, with a slim to medium build. The male has a short beard and moustache and was seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue or green shorts over top of gray sweatpants, and white or gray gardening-style gloves.
The suspect was transported to and from the bank by a local taxi cab. The taxi cab and driver were located a short time later in Pleasantville. The taxi driver was detained and questioned by police, but does not appear to be involved as an accomplice in the robbery. The robbery is under investigated by the Absecon and Pleasantville Police Departments as well as assistance from The Federal Bureau of Investigation.
