While an alleged burglar succeeded at stealing money from a bank in South Jersey Sunday afternoon, he failed at getting away.

In this case, "failing to get away" means he never made it past the parking lot of the bank he allegedly robbed.

The Voorhees Police Department says their officers responded to Republic Bank on Laurel Oak Road around 12:45 Sunday afternoon for the report of an armed robbery. Officers were advised that the suspect had left the bank on foot with an undetermined amount of cash.

When cops arrived, they quickly arrested the suspect, identified as 28-year-old Blake Lewis of Lindenwold, in the bank's parking lot. Lewis was arrested without incident.
