Man in Custody For PA Bank Robberies Charged For 3 More in Camden County, NJ
Authorities in Camden County say a Philadelphia man has been charged after allegedly committing robberies at three separate banks last year.
Camden County Prosecutor Grace MacAulay's office says 28-year-old George Drake is accused of entering PNC Bank on Monmouth Avenue in Gloucester City on July 16th, 2022, and passing a demand note to a teller for money.
Officials then say Drake did the same thing at the WSFS Bank on Route 70 in Cherry Hill on August 17th and at Santander Bank, also in Cherry Hill, on August 25th.
Following an investigation, Drake was charged with three counts of second-degree robbery.
Drake is currently in custody in Chester County, PA, in connection to multiple bank robberies in that state. He is awaiting an extradition hearing.
The public is reminded that charges are accusations and all persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
