Troopers say on the evening of October 21st, the suspect called the victim pretending to be a New York prosecutor and advised that a family member had been in a car accident with a pregnant woman.

The suspect stated that the family member needed cash for bail money and instructed the victim to meet him at the Morris Plains Municipal Building with the cash. The suspect later changed the meeting location to the Dunkin Donuts located on Speedwell Avenue in Morris Plains.

According to police, when they met, the suspect took the cash and brandished a firearm that he was wearing on the inside of his jacket before fleeing.
